    Patrick Whitesell: biography

    Patrick Whitesell is an American talent agent who has collaborated with top celebrities; he is also known as a successful businessman and the co-founder of the Endeavor Talent Agency.

    Childhood and youth

    The future entrepreneur was born into the family of Patricia and John Whitesell on February 4, 1965. The boy grew up with five brothers, all of which devoted their lives to entertainment and the sports industry. The actor and producer Sean Whitesell is probably the most famous among them; the audience remembers him for the HBO’s series Oz.

    Career

    In 1990, the young man took his first steps in the talent promotion and got hired at the InterTalent agency. Ambitious and energetic, he was developing his career quickly and left the company for United Talent Agency in 1992.

    ECC Chair Ilene Gordon interviewed Patrick Whitesell, Co-CEO of WME-IMG, on December 9 at the @hilton_chicago_hotel. Whitesell and Gordon discussed the changes social media has had on the industry and the role of an agent in reputation and brand management. Mr. Whitesell mentioned that, particularly in the music industry, clients have to be engaged on social media. As he explained, “we represent Adele and Drake. So, both of them released their records with no marketing. Basically they sent out a tweet, one post. And Adele sold more records than any record in history. More than Michael Jackson in his heyday. And that’s not spending a dollar. So that’s massive disruption and massive power, it gives a lot of control of your message to your audience.” #econclubchi #patrickwhitesell #wmeimg
