CSM Sport & Entertainment is being rebranded as Wasserman by the namesake company that acquired it in October, Wasserman announced today.

The integration of the two companies has been ongoing since the acquisition was announced and will continue throughout 2024.

The rebrand of CSM – along with the 2023 acquisition of legendary entertainment management and  production company Brillstein Entertainment Partners (which launched Wasserman’s entertainment  division) and the 2021 launch of Wasserman Music – puts Wasserman at the epicenter of sports, music, and entertainment industries worldwide. 

“This rebrand marks the next evolution of the global Wasserman brand,” said Casey Wasserman,  Wasserman Chairman and CEO. “Our teams have been working collaboratively over the past six months,  and we are already realizing the power of our expanded capabilities and worldwide reach, which together  allow us to best serve both current and future clients.” 

Through an ambitious growth strategy over the last  20-plus years, Wasserman has become a global leader in the end-to-end marketing, management and  representation business, serving talent, brands and properties. 

“This is a significant milestone and an exciting new chapter,” said Matt Vandrau, Wasserman President,  EMEA & APAC. “It also sees the launch of three new business units – Wasserman Live, Wasserman Rights  Sales and Wasserman Hospitality Sales – each of which further bolster Wasserman’s global service offering.  By coming together as one unified brand, we have built a unique proposition that we believe will drive the  business of sports, music, entertainment and culture for years to come.”  

The acquisition of CSM has given Wasserman the geographic reach to provide tailored services and an  unrivaled network of relationships, skills and specialisms to leading brands, properties and talent across 27  countries and more than 65 cities worldwide. The resulting scale across Africa, Asia, Europe, Oceania, and  North and South America has allowed the combined business to accelerate growth across the board. 

CSM’s Middle East entities will rebrand at a later date.
