UTA has promoted eight coordinators to agents, and 20 assistants have been upped to coordinators in the agency’s divisions ranging from Music to Television Literary, Digital, Speakers, Theatre, Tour Marketing, Books, Corporate Services and UTA IQ, the latter the agency’s data and analytics slot. The moves come across UTA’s Los Angeles, New York and London offices.

Promoted to agent level are Brett Duchon and Sarah Kowaney in Licensing, Branding and Endorsements; Kellen Alberstone in Alternative Television; Max Karpen in Speakers; Jessica Preciado in Marketing; Sara Schoch in Music Brand Partnerships; Miae Shin in News and Broadcast; and Stephanie Smith in UTA IQ.

Alberstone, Duchon, Preciado, Schoch and Kowaney started in the mailroom through the agency’s Agent Trainee Program.

“At UTA we take great pride in fostering the industry leaders of tomorrow,” UTA co-president David Kramer said. “With these promotions, we’re proud to celebrate the achievements of our colleagues across the agency.”
