Co-Chairman / Managing Partner / Agent, Motion Picture Talent

Since 1995, Lourd has piloted CAA with fellow co-chairman and managing partner Kevin Huvane and co-chairman Richard Lovett, while guiding the careers of a long list of A-list actors (George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Daniel Craig, Renée Zellweger, Scarlett Johansson, Ryan Gosling, Chris Hemsworth, Sean Penn), filmmakers (Anthony & Joe Russo, Alejandro González Iñárritu, Oliver Stone, Roland Emmerich, Paul Thomas Anderson, Spike Jonze) and other industry figures from Lady Gaga to Lorne Michaels.

He also helped direct CAA’s social initiatives, which have included a virtual CAA Amplify Town Hall addressing systemic racism.
