EXCLUSIVE: The Gersh Agency has upped a trio of assistants to agent status in their talent department. Louise Abnee Keshaviah gets the boost after three years at Gersh, where she started working for Nick Collins before moving to Leslie Siebert’s desk. The USC ’09 grad started her agency career at Abrams. Just shy of the three year mark at Gersh, Glick came to the agency out of Colgate University. And finally, Chapman University grad Trey Cannon has been at Gersh for two and a half years and parlayed an internship into a full time gig on the TV side. He’s worked for SVP and TV talent agent Jennifer Craig, placing clients on ABC, FX, and HBO projects.
All three newly minted agents will report to Gersh’s talent partners. “We’re very excited to see what this new class of agents can bring to the table in the coming year, and we’re proud of continuing to identify and promote talent from within the company,” said agency co-head Bob Gersh.
“Josh, Louise, and Trey all have made a significant impact in their few years with Gersh. We are very pleased with our growing team, and can only look forward to bigger and better things that are sure to come,” added Siebert.
The agency’s currently celebrating the awards season nominations of clients J.K. Simmons (Whiplash), Patricia Arquette (Boyhood), Jeffrey Tambor (Transparent), Taylor Schilling (Orange is the New Black), Frances O’Connor (The Missing), and Allison Janney (Mom).
