Jennings had been with CAA since 2007 and after being promoted to agent in 2012 began building an impressive roster of clients across film and television.
“I’m beyond excited for this next chapter at Gersh,” Jennings said. “I’ve long respected the agents working there and what they stand for and look forward to joining the team.”
The hire comes after Gersh announced in April that it had sold a minority stake to New York-based financier Crestview Partners for an undisclosed sum and is continuing to make expansions on various business opportunities across the board. Jennings’ hire is expected to be the first of many new hires and acquisitions in the future.
