UTA Promotes 19 Agents, Executives To Partner—Including Head Of Digital Ali Berman

United Talent Agency has promoted 19 agents and executives to partner—its largest partner class ever.

The class includes longtime digital talent agent Ali Berman, who will lead UTA’s digital sector solo following the exit of her former co-head Greg Goodfried, UTA tells Tubefilter. Goodfried, who’d been with UTA since 2014, is leaving to work one-on-one with the TikTok-dominating D’Amelio family.

Newly named partners are agents from 14 areas of the company, including motion picture, TV talent, literary, podcasting and emerging platforms, news and broadcasting, digital talent, endorsements and voiceover, fine arts, culture and leadership, and alternative TV. Also named are several corporate executives from UTA’s legal, communications, and finance divisions.

“These are leaders across our business making substantial contributions to the growth, evolution, and resilience of our company,” UTA co-president David Kramer said in a statement. “In their talent and leadership, we see the expanding reach of UTA’s work on behalf of world-class creators and cultural voices.”

UTA has now named a total of 22 new partners this year—more than half of whom are women and people of color, it points out.

  • Brittany Balbo – Co-Head, Endorsements and Voiceover
