Cheryl Paglierani Jumps To CAA


Veteran music agent and former partner of UTA Cheryl Paglierani, has joined CAA, the agency announced June 24. She’s worked with and developed artists including Post Malone, 21 Savage, Flo Milli, Jessie Murph and Dominic Fike, and she was named to Pollstar‘s Women of Live and Impact 50 lists this year.

“We are thrilled to welcome Cheryl to CAA,” co-heads of global touring, Darryl Eaton and Rick Roskin, said in a statement. “Cheryl has a deep understanding of artists and how they envision their careers, and she brings the expertise and tenacity to help make them a reality. Her acumen, experience and character will make her an outstanding member of our team.”

Paglierani’s client 21 Savage recently wrapped up his North American amphitheater tour that sold over 400,000 tickets, and he also performed at Governors Ball in Flushing, Queens, New York on June 2. Post Malone also headlined the festival (as well as Bonnaroo, Stagecoach Rolling Loud and more) and is set to release his country album on Aug. 16.

“It’s an incredible feeling to return to CAA,” Paglierani said in a statement. “I’m excited to work with this extremely talented and driven team. I’ve been lucky to call so many of them friends for years and can’t wait to hit the ground running together.”

Paglierani got her start in music working as a receptionist at dance record label Robbins Entertainment. She began her journey in the agency world 16 years ago at William Morris, which was followed by stints at CAA and The Agency Group, which merged with UTA in 2015. In 2020 she was named partner at UTA.

“Cheryl is highly respected in the music industry for her ability to identify and elevate emerging talent and foster the careers of superstars,” Bryan Lourd, CAA’s co-chairman and chief executive officer, said in a statement. “Today’s announcement underscores the strength and momentum of CAA’s touring business and also speaks to the agency’s ongoing commitment to helping develop the careers of next-generation artists.”
