Select Management Hires Jake Webb; Adds WolfieRaps, Nikita Dragun, 8 Others To Roster (Exclusive)

Select Management Group, the digital talent management firm that counts starry clients like Gigi Gorgeous, LaurDIY, and MyLifeAsEva, has hired talent manager Jake Webb — who has in turn brought a slew of illustrious clients on board.

Webb will be based out of Select’s Los Angeles offices and report to partners Scott Fisher and Adam Wescott. His roster of creators span the lifestyle, beauty, and comedy spaces, including: comedian/rapper Charlie ‘WolfieRaps’ Xavier (10.2 million YouTube subscribers), transgender beauty vlogger Nikita Dragun (700,000 subscribers), plus-size fashion vlogger and paranormal storytime teller Loey Lane (1.2 million subscribers), gay twin vlogger brothers The Rhodes Bros (700,000 subscribers), and lifestyle creator Bri Hall (550,000 subscribers).

Select reps clients with respect to opportunities in film, TV, music, and brand partnerships — and it has inked notable deals with Fanta, Revlon, Starbucks, and Crest. Earlier this year, the company’s production arm SelectNext released the feature documentary This Is Everything: Gigi Gorgeous, as well as Me And My Grandma, a scripted half-hour comedy starring Eva Gutowski and Rhea Perlman. Both projects premiered on YouTube Red.

“We are proud to welcome Jake and this diverse group of talent to the Select family,” founder Scott Fisher said in a statement. “Jake aligns with Select’s mission to represent creators from all backgrounds and walks of life, who share authentic content that engages global audiences across all platforms.”

Prior to joining Select, Webb headed up StyleHaul’s Hauk vertical, which targets the gaming and men’s lifestyle spaces, and served as the director of rights and partnerships at United Entertainment Group.

Webb’s other clients slated to join him at Select include: comedic lifestyle creator Kellie Sweet (1.4 million subscribers), top male hair and fashion creator Joe ‘BluMaan’ Andrews (950,000 subscribers), beauty influencer Teaira Walker (500,000 subscribers), Turkish lifestyle creator Hailey Sani (530,000 subscribers), and Brazilian beauty vlogger Maria Bethany (600,000 followers).
