Ari Emanuel Net Worth
Ari Emanuel Net Worth: Ari Emanuel is an American talent agent who has a net worth of $200 million. Ari Emanuel was born March 29, 1961 in Chicago, Illinois. He is best known as the co-CEO of William Morris Endeavor-IMG (WME-IMG), an entertainment and media agency. He was a founding partner of the Endeavor Agency and was instrumental in its June 2009 merger with the William Morris Agency. In April 2009, Emanuel's firm Endeavor agreed to combine forces with its rival William Morris, an 111-year-old agency with a stellar reputation. The move, swiftly approved by the Federal Trade Commission, created a new super-agency of sorts, which boasted a client list of more than 1,000 of the world's most famous and talented actors, writers, musicians, directors and producers. This move posed a threat to the market dominance of Creative Artists Agency (CAA), a corporate beast founded by the legendary Michael Ovitz in the mid '70s, which has in recent times become so big and so successful that it overshadowed every other player in Hollywood. Interestingly, Emanuel began his entertainment industry career as an agent trainee at CAA. Ari Emanuel is widely considered a prominent talent agent, a beloved personality and even an inspiration. In fact, he was the inspiration for the character "Ari", played by Jeremy Piven, on the HBO series Entourage.
