Vice Chairman

The industry giant co-founded CAA before joining Universal in 1995 as president and COO. He ran the studio for 18 years — the longest reign in Hollywood history— before eventually being named vice chairman of NBCUniversal in 2013.

Before starting CAA, he was a TV agent at William Morris.
