Sures was elevated to 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 divisions. Sures helped steer the 2014 acquisition of N.S. Bienstock, a preeminent indie outfit for news talent including Anderson Cooper, Robin Roberts and Megyn Kelly, and, in 2017, the speakers bureau Greater Talent Network. He co-founded the nonprofit UTA Foundation, which aids clients in philanthropy. In 2018, he was instrumental in the strategic sale of minority stakes in UTA by two global investment firms — Investcorp and PSP Investments. Sures joined UTA when it was founded in 1991.
