Former CAA Agents Form Grandview Management Company

Former CAA lit agent Matt Rosen, manager Jeff Silver and producer Brian Kavanaugh-Jones have formed management company Grandview.

Grandview will manage writers, filmmakers, and television producers, focusing on high-end commercial fare stretching across all genres and mediums.

Rosen and Silver will helm the management side, working as representatives, which will allow them to focus more time on building the careers of their clients while offering a more complete package than a management company alone. Kavanaugh-Jones will advise clients on production and packaging while continuing to produce films under his Automatik banner.

“We are building a company that is solely client focused and rooted deeply in talent, ambition and culture. Grandview will provide the resources of a big firm but still have the intimate feel of a family operation,” said Silver.

“CAA has been an amazing home for me, and while I am sad to leave, I am very excited to start this new endeavor with Jeff and Brian,” said Rosen.

Grandview will retain clients from Silver’s past company, Fourth Floor Productions, including screenwriters Michael Mitnick, Andrew Dodge and Matthew Charman. Kavanaugh-Jones’ upcoming credits include Jeff Nichols’ “Midnight Special” and “Autobahn.”

“I am so excited to be partnering with Jeff and Matt and have the opportunity to bring my producing and financing background to the table for Grandview and their clients,” said Kavanaugh-Jones.
