United Talent Agency announced the acquisition of UK literary agency Curtis Brown Group. A UTA statement says Curtis Brown is “the first prominent UK literary and talent representation group to join with a major global talent agency.”
For UTA, the deal significantly expands its global footprint in one of the world’s most important and thriving creative markets. Under the terms of the deal London-based Curtis Brown Group, founded in 1899, will continue to operate under its current name and highly regarded management, including CEO Jonny Geller. This structure will allow both Curtis Brown Group and UTA to continue their fruitful and longstanding relationships with other agency partners in the UK and US.
Geller said of the deal:
UTA’s deep understanding of the European market combined with their culture of collaboration and innovation offers our company and our clients many great opportunities. This partnership will allow Curtis Brown to grow and to respond to the demands of an increasingly globalised world.
Founded in 1899, Curtis Brown clients include Haruki Murakami, Margaret Atwood, and Matt Haig, as well as the literary estates of Ian Fleming and John le Carré. For more information, see the official announcement.
