Sures became co-president of UTA, along with David Kramer, in September 2017. Along with CEO Jeremy Zimmer and Kramer, he oversees some 350 agents and 1,000 employees with a focus on the TV divisions — scripted and non-scripted, news and broadcasting, talent and speakers. He helped steer the 2014 acquisition of N.S. Bienstock, a preeminent indie outfit for news talent including Anderson Cooper, Don Lemon and Norah O’Donnell, and in 2017, the company locked with speakers bureau Greater Talent Network. More recently, Sures played a key role in the ongoing WGA/ATA dispute, and Gov. Jerry Brown appointed him to the UC Board of Regents in 2019. He joined UTA when it was founded in 1991 and co-founded the UTA Foundation, which aids clients with philanthropy.
