West Hollywood, CA (PRWEB) May 20, 2011
Famos LLC has tapped former William Morris Endeavor agent, Jason Trawick to oversee the company’s arts and entertainment brand, f*star, a partnership with musician and media impresario, Dave Stewart and legendary Rolling Stones frontman, Mick Jagger.
F*star is a white-label of the famos* media syndication platform, specifically tailored to address the unique needs of individuals and entities with broad digital reach and influence. In his new capacity, Mr. Trawick will continue to work closely with his former employer as the new online service, currently under wraps at http://www.famos.com, readies for a planned summer debut.
Mr. Trawick brings with him 12 years of experience at the William Morris (now William Morris Endeavor) Agency, representing a roster of clients such as Britney Spears, Taylor Swift, Hilary Duff, Pauley D (Jersey Shore), Paris Hilton, Heidi Klum and Dwight Yoakam. Trawick is a graduate of Michigan State University and earned his MBA from Texas A&M University.
Says Famos LLC founder and CEO, Rent Sidon, “We’re delighted to have Jason on board with us at famos*. He clearly grasps the distinction between digital fame and real-world celebrity, and he’s got the experience, credibility and instincts to effectively bridge the two.”
Mr. Trawick continues, “As agents, we’re constantly getting pitched deals with some new technology that’s going to revolutionize this or monetize that, when basically they’re all just reading off the same script. Famos* is a different animal -- a disruptive technology that respects the artist and values the fan, which is basically everything my clients ever wanted.” Adds Trawick, “It’s a very exciting opportunity for me professionally, and I’m humbled to be a part of such a visionary partnership.”
