Former Fortitude Partner Ben Press Joins Evolution as Manager

This after leaving Buchwald & Associates in April

Ben Press has joined Evolution Talent Management as a manager after 22 years as an agent.

Press earned his stripes as an agent at Paradigm and Innovative before he started his own boutique agency, Fortitude, with partner Michael McConnell in 2005.

In 2011, Press and McConnell merged Fortitude with Doug Buchwald and Associates to form Buchwald-Fortitude. The partnership dissolved this past spring and Press has taken his time figuring out where he wanted to go next with his career.

During his time as an agent, Press has worked with Cybill Shepherd, Peter Iliff, Mario Van Peebles, Joss Stone, Crispin Glover, Angela Lansbury, Jennifer Esposito, Lolita Davidovich , Kathleen Quinlan, and others. It is unknown at this time which clients will be taking Press on as their manager.
