United Talent Agency has hired marketing veteran Alisann Blood, who will work alongside Toni Wallace as co-head of the company’s rapidly growing Music Brand Partnerships team. Since forming in 2017, the team has secured more than 250 partnerships and built an eight-figure brand business for the agency. 

Blood brings more than a decade of experience, most recently at Maverick Management, and will be based in Los Angeles reporting to UTA head of worldwide music David Zedeck.
“With Alisann’s addition to our world-class team, we are further solidifying our market-leading position in the music brand partnerships space,” Wallace said in a statement. “Alisann’s skillset and experience will exponentially impact opportunities for all of our music clients around the globe.”
Blood in her new role will expand the division and secure additional marketing opportunities for UTA’s global music roster. She most recently was senior vice president of brand partnerships at Maverick Management and has spent time at Crush Music, Capitol Music Group and Steve Madden. 
“I have long admired UTA as a best-in-class company for the work they do on behalf of their clients,” Blood says in a statement. “Toni has built a remarkable business and an incredible team in Music Brand Partnerships, and I couldn’t be more excited to jump in and contribute to the group’s continued growth and success.”
The Music Brand Partnerships division has established partnerships for artists including Post Malone, Chance The Rapper, The Jonas Brothers, H.E.R., X Ambassadors, Common, Tierra Whack, Young Thug, Jimmie Allen and many more, and led sponsorships for artist-curated festivals including Post Malone’s inaugural Posty Fest, H.E.R.’s first-ever Lights On festival, Y.G.’s The Boogie, A Day to Remember’s Self Help Fest, Excision’s Lost Lands and Bass Canyon, and Paramore’s Parahoy, among others. 
The team is also spearheading partnerships for the second installment of Posty Fest in November 2019, which is doubling its capacity with a move to AT&T Stadium and has already exceeded 2018’s partnership goals with partners such as ARNETTE, Bud Light, Crocs, HyperX, Madrinas Coffee, and others.
Blood is a national board member of Musicians on Call, an organization that brings live and recorded music to the bedsides of patients in healthcare facilities. She is also an Adjunct Professor at her alma mater, Syracuse University.
