NFL star Russell Wilson and wife Ciara Wilson are quickly making a name for themselves outside of music and sports. The couple partnered with top talent manager Jason Weinberg, of Untitled Entertainment to launch a boutique management company. According to Deadline, the management company will represent talent from the sports and entertainment arenas. The company will serve as an expansion of Wilson’s West2East brand management company and is focused on working with “a select few top athletes and entertainers who want to inspire the world”.
The trio shared the news of their partnership in a statement released on Thursday October 10th, 2019. “The three of us are excited to come together to find and develop the next, future generation of talent. We each bring a unique expertise and voice to our respective fields and want to collectively bring that knowledge to representing a select few artists and athletes.” Ciara and Russell also took to their Instagram to share the news with fans.
The couple has been building their business portfolio since the beginning of August 2019 when they became part owners of the Seattle Sounders soccer team. They also launched their production company, Why Not You.
Deadline reports that Weinberg is a founding partner of Untitled Entertainment, where he represents top actors, filmmakers, and musicians in entertainment, including Russell and Ciara in film and television. His partnership with Russell and Ciara is separate from his work at Untitled.
