Stella Alex: Preserving Savage legacy

Youth Impact Report 2012: Primo Percenters

Since becoming a partner and part owner of the Savage Agency five years ago, Alex has not only preserved founder Judy Savage’s legacy but has increased the company’s clout in the highly competitive world of young talent. In addition to repping such names as Shailene Woodley, Ross Lynch, Hudson Thames and Zach Mills, Alex is also guiding the careers of Nick Robinson, Taylor Gray and Ryan Wynott.

“They’re all doing movies now as well as TV projects,” she says. “Judy entrusted me with her baby, and the exciting thing about our agency is that we get to develop them from a very young age, and they stay with us.”

She attributes client loyalty to relationships forged over many years. For example, Thames, who stars in “Malibu Country” and just shot the lead in “The A List,” has been with the agency since he was a little boy, while “Super-8” co-star Mills “started with us at 10.”

While there are fewer sitcoms for children today, “family shows are coming back and the young adult scene is really hot now,” she says. “That’s great as it means their careers don’t end at 18.”

Impact: Spearheaded a smooth transition for the Savage Agency
Next: Client Ross Lynch (“Austin and Ally”) is branching out into music with family band, R5.
Causes: Serves as VP of Shailene Woodley’s charity, All It Takes, and works with L.A. Animal Rescue
