Ariel
Emanuel

CEO

Emanuel has been navigating Endeavor through some rough waters – a scrapped IPO in 2019, a 20-month standoff with the WGA over packaging fees and, worst of all, a global pandemic that forced the company to cut 20% of its workforce in May 2020. But, amidst all this, there’s also been a wealth of successes, including huge deals (Dick Wolf’s massive five-year re-up with Universal TV; the $610 million sale of Ryan Reynolds’ Aviation Gin) and big signings (Angelina Jolie, Robert Downey Jr., David Harbour, Sir Elton John, Shakira). On the social justice front, WME and Endeavor Content partnered with Michael B. Jordan and Color of Change on the #ChangeHollywood initiative, dedicated to supporting Black voices, which includes a $5 million investment in community programs.
