EXCLUSIVE: At last night’s holiday party, Management 360 minted as new partners Justin Grey Stone, Chris Huvane, and Gabriel Cohen. The three talent managers rep actors that include Margot Robbie, Johnny Galecki, Dakota Johnson, Chadwick Boseman, and Blake Lively.
At the same time, the management/production company has promoted Ana Bedayo and Charlie Gavshon to become talent managers.
Management 360 confirmed the promotions, giving Deadline this statement: “Although we continue to expand our profile as producers, building upon the success of Emmy-winner Game of Thrones and the critically-acclaimed feature film Steve Jobs, the heart of our business has always been, and will continue to be, the representation of exceptional talent. These promotions signal this continued emphasis and in that regard, Justin, Chris, and Gabe have earned both the trust of their clients and the respect of their colleagues and peers.”
Stone started in the Endeavor mailroom before becoming a manager at Untitled Entertainment in 2006. He joined 360 in 2013 and his list includes Lively, Galecki, 50 Shades of Grey‘s Johnson, Harry Potter co-star Rupert Grint, Kate Bosworth and Mira Sorvino.
Huvane left his post as Senior West Coast Editor of GQ Magazine to join Management 360 in 2010. He started with HBH Public Relations, and in addition to Boseman and Robbie, his clients include Vikings star Travis Fimmel, Kingdom‘s Frank Grillo, celebrity stylist Brad Goreski, Gotham‘s Ben McKenzie, and Halt & Catch Fire creators Chris Cantwell and Chris Rogers.
Cohen has been with Management 360 since its inception in 2002. He started as an executive assistant to the head of casting at Paramount Pictures, then worked at Talent Entertainment Group under Evelyn O’Neill and Suzan Bymel, who would go on to co-found Management 360 with Guymon Casady, Eric Kranzler, Daniel Rappaport and David Seltzer. Cohen found a niche transitioning offshore talent into Hollywood, and his clients include Wolf Of Wall Street‘s Robbie and Fear The Walking Dead star Alycia Debnam-Carey.
As producers, Huvane and Cohen are developing the feature film Dangerous Odds, which is set up at Warner Bros with Robbie starring and 360 client Andrea Berloff writing.
As for the newly minted managers, Bedayo worked for the Hillary Clinton campaign and started in the UTA mailroom before training under O’Neill at Management 360. Gavshon started at Untitled and then moved to Management 360 to become the assistant to newly minted partner Stone.
This boosts the number of Management 360 partners to 14; aside from the six co-founders, the other partners are Eryn Brown, William Choi, Darin Friedman, Nicole King, and Lainie Sorkin Becky.
