Select Management Group represents top digital talent including Gigi Gorgeous (2.9 Million Followers), MyLifeAsEva (2.7 Million Followers), and Tess Christine (1.4 Million Followers). Founded by Scott Fisher, the company is pleased to welcome partner and co-founder Adam Wescott. Wescott has spent more than 10 years as an entertainment and digital media executive at E! Entertainment and EQAL Media Networks (acquired by Everyday Health, Inc.). Wescott developed and executive produced the Google-funded YouTube Original channel u look haute in 2012. He’s executed content, programming and business strategy for celebrities and brands including Refinery29, Bethenny Frankel, Lauren Conrad and more.
“Scott recognized the power of talent from the beginning. His decision to manage individuals rather than a network of talent is truly innovative,” says Wescott. “I look forward to expanding the management offering and building original business under the Select umbrella.”
Wescott will oversee the company’s new entertainment arm, SelectNext, to develop original projects and business ventures. SelectNext will consult, produce and build standalone businesses in partnership with Select Management Group talent and others.
