The West Coast office of Authentic Talent and Literary Management has added a pair of managers to its growing roster. Alissa Feldman joins eight years at Magnolia Entertainment and Jason Egenberg has become a manager after spending the past five years at UTA. Both will work from the company’s Culver City headquarters and brings the number of LA-based managers to eight. That includes Anne Woodward, who joined in January and brought in Brie Larson and other clients, and WME talent agent Sean Elliott, who joined a year ago to spearhead the LA office bringing James Marsden, Chris Lilley and others.
Authentic also recently added managers Meg Mortimer and Jill Kaplan to the Brooklyn office, putting the total number of managers at the bicoastal company to 18. At Magnolia, Feldman worked with Joel Kinnaman, Bill Skarsgard, Michael Nyqvist, Fares Fares, Caitlin Stasey, Kelsey Chow and others. While at UTA, Egenberg repped Ashley Tisdale, Kaitlyn Dever, Brenda Song, and others.
“I couldn’t ask for better additions as we are committed to building the preeminent talent management company with a focus on vehemently representing our clients and making a positive impact on their careers, their lives, and what they stand for on the planet,” said Authentic head Jon Rubenstein, who added the new hires fit a team-focused culture.
