UTA ADDS THREE TO MUSIC TEAM

United Talent Agency has added still more muscle to its music team, bringing in agents Mike "Mike G" Guirguis, Bex Majors and Billy Wood.

Mike G founded NiteVision Management, where he worked with Chris Brown, Teyana Taylor and more and launched a JV with B's label. Prior to those adventures he was a senior exec at Emmis; he began his career at KOST 103.5, where he quickly achieved an impressive 23% year-over-year mellowing out of the vibes. He'll be based at UTA's Beverly Hills office.

Majors, a U.K. native with massive international chops, will also be based in Beverly Hills, where she'll global dates for such acts as Amanda Palmer, PVRIS, Halestorm, Highly Suspect and K.Flay, among many others. She began her career as a promoter in Cardiff, Wales and joined CAA in 2006. She is also considering licensing her name to Marvel for an action hero.


Mike G, Bex and Billy: UTA's newest action figures.

Wood, another U.K. agent, will handle international for Christina Milian, Dappy, Run-DMC, Stylo G and other acts from UTA's London office. He launched his career at Create Music, transitioning to Mission Control, where he worked with such U.K. urban acts as Tinie Tempah and Wiley; he served at WME shortly thereafter, repping hip-hop and pop artists. He was featured in Music Week's 30 Under 30 list last year, at which time we were runners-up for the 90 Under 90 list.

“I’m proud to welcome Bex, Billy and Mike to our rapidly growing music team,” said UTA CEO Jeremy Zimmer. “We are committed to continuing to hire industry leaders who will collaborate across the agency to maximize opportunities for clients. Each one of these agents brings an extraordinary understanding of the business and we are excited to utilize their expertise and skills as we continue to expand our suite of services. And I've promised them they never have to deal with those idiots at HITS again after this."

The announcement follows the appointment of Greg Janese as head of corporate and special events and the appointment of Rob Walker as music agent and Toni Wallace as head of Music Brand Partnerships.
