Longtime United Talent Agency partner and senior agent Blair Kohan has another feather in her cap, having been named to UTA’s board of directors. She joined the global talent and entertainment agency in 1997 and has been a partner at UTA since 2004. 

Kohan has more than 30 years of experience in the industry, with her work spanning talent agencies, production companies and studios. Artists she has represented over the years include Sarah Silverman, Jill Soloway, Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg, Paul Rudd and Chelsea Handler. Kohan has also been a leading voice in the women’s empowerment movement and is involved in the recently-announced “Time’s Up” initiative, which provides support to those who have experienced sexual harassment, assault, or abuse in the workplace. 
“We want our board to reflect the direction and growth of the company, and Blair Kohan does that and more,” United Talent Agency CEO Jeremy Zimmer said in a statement released along with UTA’s Jan. 10 announcement. “She is an innovative and passionate partner to her clients and a generous and wise colleague to her UTA family. I am grateful Blair has agreed to take on these added responsibilities. She will be a powerful addition to our board, and her passion, perspective and experience will be invaluable as we navigate the many opportunities and changes shaping our business today.”
Kohan added, “Joining the Board of a company that has been my home for 20 years is a defining experience for me both professionally and personally. UTA is now a true global entertainment and media company, made up of some of the most talented, innovative, and creative people in our business. I’m excited about the opportunity to work with our board and my incredible colleagues to expand and advocate for our business. It is my hope that elevating another woman to the Board will have positive ripple effects at every level of our company, and hopefully serve as a model for the industry. It confirms UTA as an inclusive and empowering home for the artists we champion and our entire UTA family.”
The UTA board of directors also includes UTA Chairman Jim Berkus, CEO Jeremy Zimmer, Co-Presidents David Kramer and Jay Sures, co-founder Peter Benedek and Tracey Jacobs and Matt Rice.
