Creative Artists Agency (CAA), the US sports and entertainment agency giant, has appointed nine managing directors and restructured its agency board membership after being acquired last year by Artemis, the investment firm of the French Pinault family.  

The new managing directors include several senior figures from the firm’s sports division – Howard Nuchow and Michael Levine, co-heads of CAA Sports, and president Paul Danforth.

Meanwhile, the new agency board of 27 members will be co-chaired by Matt O’Donohoe, president of CAA Sports International.

O’Donohoe was promoted to that role in February 2023.

The managing directors will work alongside CAA co-chairman and chief executive Bryan Lourd, co-chairmen Kevin Huvane and Richard Lovett, and president Jim Burtson on varying strategic business and operational matters.

Artemis completed its acquisition of CAA last September, purchasing the stake previously held by global investment company TPG.
