CAA promoted eight of its trainees to agent or executive at its corporate retreat in Carlsbad, Calif. this past weekend, the agency said Monday. The promotions reflect the growing diversity of CAA’s business portfolio, as the eight newly minted agents and executives span six distinct departments.
Andrea Weintraub and Jacquie Katz are now agents in the television department, Rebecca Nichols and Kylen Sharpe are now agents in the music department and Zack Stone is an agent in the music sponsorship department.
CAA also employes executives since the agency operates in certain sectors in which the word agent means little. Shelby Kelleher was promoted to executive in the property sales department, and the same goes for Carey Schwartz in the marketing department and Jordan Harnsberger in the sports department.
Harnsberger, Katz, Schwartz, and Weintraub will be based in Los Angeles; Kelleher and Stone will be based in New York; Sharpe will be based in Nashville; and Nichols will be based in London.
