4 upped in Endeavor perf

Promotions delivered in dramatic fashion

Philip d’Amecourt, Lis Rowinski, Matt Shaffer and Sean Zeid have been promoted to agents at Endeavor.

The promotions were delivered in dramatic fashion during the agency’s monthly staff meeting, which began when client Dick Clark came in to complain that calls to his agent had not been returned.

Head of alternative television Sean Perry blamed his assistant, Zeid. Clark replied that the best way to handle the situation was to get Zeid off the desk and make him an agent.

Rowinski’s promotion came after partner Spencer Baumgarten demonstrated the agency’s dial-in box-office hotline report via speakerphone. The voice of partner David Greenblatt counted down the top five films, concluding with the promotion of the motion picture literary department co-coordinator.

D’Amecourt was promoted only after answering a series of trivia questions about “The Simpsons,” delivered in the voices of “Simpsons” characters Police Chief Clancy Wiggum, convenience store owner Apu Nahasapeemapetilon and Professor John Frink, all voiced by Endeavor client Hank Azaria.

Talent department coordinator and Texas native Shaffer received his bump after Endeavor partners John Lesher and Brian Swardstrom asked him to put on a full complement of Western gear. His wife was called in and Shaffer gave the agency a two-step dancing lesson on top of the boardroom’s 40-foot-long marble table.

Zeid began his Endeavor career in October 2002. He previously worked for ICM and AMG. Rowinski came to Endeavor in August 2000.

D’Amecourt worked for ICM, Clear Channel and The Tribune Co. in Colorado. Shaffer came to Endeavor in February 2002, following a brief stint at UTA. He received his bachelor’s degree from Southern Methodist University and his law degree from Texas A&M Law School.
