United Talent Agency announced 50 promotions across 20 divisions, including three agents and two coordinators in its Music department, the company said today (Nov. 3).

Nikos Kazoleas, Alaina Latona and James Osgood are newly minted agents while Jamie Waldman, Library Brennan Duffy and Shaq Millington move into coordinator positions. 

“The elevated group represents a wide range of backgrounds and experiences across gender and ethnicity,” UTA said in the announcement “Close to 60% of those promoted identify as women and a third identify as people of color. Additionally, over 90% of those promoted to Agent and over 80% of those promoted to Coordinator started their careers in the Agent Training Program, and over 80% of those promoted to Executive started as Assistant. 

“We are grateful for our colleagues’ dedication and resilience as UTA continues to succeed in an evolving business landscape,” said UTA Co-President David Kramer. “We look forward to seeing all of the great achievements this group will continue to accomplish in their new roles as the company innovates, expands and flourishes.”

The promotions follow on the heels of agent Scott Clayton moving to UTA from WME. While the agency hasn’t officially announced the hire, multiple sources confirmed to Pollstar that Clayton would join UTA.

The extensive promotions class is a reflection of the agency’s recent growth. UTA and its partner company Klutch Sports Group announced the establishment of a significant on-the-ground presence in Atlanta, making UTA the first among the industry’s biggest talent, sports and entertainment companies to establish a full-service base of operations in the city. 

Additionally, UTA also plans to establish a second UTA Artist Space gallery in its new Atlanta offices. The move escalates UTA’s work championing prominent artists, athletes, musicians and brands with strong ties to the region. Earlier this year, UTA also announced the opening of its new Nashville headquarters, which occupies the site of the former historic downtown Carnegie Library.
