More than forty percent of the 26 new partners in 2022 identify as women or people of color.

Over the past year, including these partners, UTA has promoted over 125 people during a period of significant growth and evolution. In December 2021, UTA acquired MediaLink, one of the most trusted and connected strategic consulting firms in the media and marketing landscape. Additionally, UTA and its partner company Klutch Sports Group announced the establishment of a substantial on-the-ground presence in Atlanta, making UTA the first of the industry’s largest talent, sports and entertainment companies to establish a full-service base of operations in the city. UTA also plans to establish a second UTA Artist Space gallery in its new Atlanta offices. The move intensifies UTA’s work on behalf of leading artists, athletes, musicians and brands with strong ties to the region.
