EXCLUSIVE: A week after veteran talent agent Jed Abrahams resigned as KMR Talent’s SVP and head of the agency’s New York office, he has joined L.A.-based management and production company, The Rosenzweig Group (aka The Rose Group), as a talent manager. He will open and head an office in New York, making The Rosenzweig Group — founded in 2018 by Marni Rosenzweig — officially bi-coastal.

After a brief career as an actor, Abrahams transitioned to talent representation, spending the last two decades as an agent. He started at Henderson/Hogan Agency, Stewart Talent and The Talent House before his 10-year run as SVP and Head of New York at KMR Talent.

Clients joining Abrahams at The Rosenzweig Group include Broadway actors Eden Espinosa (Lempicka), Tony-nominee Robyn Hurder (Chicago) and Kecia Lewis (The Passage, The Blacklist), currently starring in Alicia Keys’s musical Hell’s Kitchen. Also joining Abrahams at TRG is Aaron Serotsky (Julia, Dopesick, City On A Hill) and Jay Wilkison (Younger), a series regular on the upcoming Amazon series, Clean Slate.

“After 20 years of agenting, I am thrilled to discover a newfound passion and excitement, as I begin to zoom in and have a more hands-on approach to a small, select list of uniquely talented artists,” Abrahams said. “When presented the opportunity to join forces with Marni Rosenzweig, I was over the moon at the prospect of collaborating with an undeniably seasoned and accomplished manager, leader of such a respected company.”

The Rosenzweig Group clients include Alex Borstein, Sandra Bernhard, Miranda Rae Mayo, Patrick J. Adams and Glynn Turman, among others.

“Jed is the perfect fit for our company,” Rosenzweig said. “He is a well-respected, veteran talent agent who will excel as a manager. His work ethic and passion for actors and all creatives is unparalleled and we are excited to welcome his impressive clients to our now bi-coastal company.”

KMR Talent’s March 22 move to suspend its SAG-AFTRA franchise has triggered an exodus of agents who have since joined other companies or opened their own shops.
