Music industry veteran Robert Gibbs has joined UTA as a Partner and Co-Head of the agency’s Atlanta office. In his new role, Gibbs will join UTA Atlanta Co-Heads Rich Paul, Arthur Lewis and Steve Cohen to help grow the agency’s footprint across music, sports, film, fine arts, television and podcasts, among other areas.

Gibbs was most recently the Head of Music at ICM Partners, where he established himself as the first African American head of a major agency music department. In addition to his role managing ICM’s global music division, he worked with a top-tier client list which included J. Cole, Ari Lennox, PartyNextDoor, Roy Woods, JID, Bas, Earthgang, Cozz, Lute, Omen, SoFaygo and Mike Dimes. Gibbs also notably serves on the board of A Place Called Home, a non-profit which provides children and teens living in South Central Los Angeles with access to the arts, educational programs, counseling and mentorship.
