Smith most recently worked at Gersh, where he secured endorsements and voice-over campaigns for talent such as Eva Longoria, Kaley Cuoco, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Kathryn Hahn, Joe Keery, Jacob Elordi and more.
Ulanoff is joining from ICM Partners, where he oversaw branding for the Unscripted Television department, as well as consumer product licensing.

In their new roles, Smith and Ulanoff will be responsible for securing endorsement deals and commercial opportunities for UTA clients and pairing them with brands at the intersection of entertainment, fashion and technology.
Murray will be responsible for securing voice-over opportunities for the agency’s talent roster. He previously served as a voice-over agent at A3, where he placed talent in animated pics including Encanto, Duncanville, Superman and New Croods. He also helped clients develop and sell animated series of their own.
