Brian Dow has been made a partner at APA, where the 31-year-old founder and head of the Branded Lifestyle department will serve as the youngest partner in the history of the agency.

Dow joined APA in 2008 and his roster of high-profile reality TV stars includes the Kardashians, Bethenny Frankel, Kendra Wilkinson, Jenni “J-Woww” Farley and Michael Moloney, all of whom depend on Dow to build their brand through domestic and international licensing, endorsement and equity deals.

In 2009, Dow negotiated Frankel’s deal to create the Skinnygirl Margarita and recently oversaw its sale to Beam Global Spirits. Under his leadership, APA’s Branded Lifestyle department has grown to include six agents between the agency’s Los Angeles and New York offices.

“It is a very exciting time to be involved with celebrity clients. Brian Dow has done an excellent job guiding our clients into new and exciting businesses,” said Jim Gosnell, prexy and CEO of APA.
