Chairman / CEO

Gores founded Paradigm in 1992, and over the past 27 years has built one of the industry’s top agencies, with more than 700 employees in 10 offices across the US, Canada and UK. Paradigm remains privately owned, although recently discussed (and ultimately declined) merging with rival UTA. He has grown the agency through shrewd acquisitions that have diversified Paradigm’s client base, creating a robust talent, literary and TV packaging business and a powerhouse in music worldwide. Paradigm has a roster of clients that span the creative arts (Ed Sheeran, Stephen King, Henry Golding, Halsey, Coldplay, James Wan). In 2018, expansion continued with the acquisition of Dale Morris & Associates touring business and 2019 with the integration of top UK-based music agency Coda into Paradigm.
