EXCLUSIVE: After engineering a Fox News contributor deal for actress Stacey Dash, Georgia-based attorney Patrick Millsaps is launching full-fledged talent management company HBS Management with offices in Century City, Atlanta, and Nashville.
Millsaps spent 2012 as Chief of Staff on Newt Gingrich’s presidential campaign before helping Clueless actress Dash parlay her politically charged social media presence into a Fox News contract in May. He’s joining forces with California-based Adam Trahan and Karl Braun to launch HBS, with Trahan anchoring the Century City outpost and Braun heading music clients out of Nashville.
