EXCLUSIVE: Gotham Group CEO and Founder Ellen Goldsmith-Vein has announced a trio of promotions. Nick McCabe, who was previously a coordinator working under partner and literary head Lindsay Williams, and Thuan Dang, a former assistant to Gotham partner Peter McHugh, move up to managers, while Eitan Kleiman, who officially helped Goldsmith-Vein and Gotham producer Lee Stollman, joined the production division of Gotham Group.
“Thuan, Nick and Eitan are real team players and we have been fortunate to have helped them at the highest levels of the company,” said Goldsmith-Vein. “I can’t think of a more appropriate or happier way to start the New Year than to reward them for all their great work and dedication over the past difficult year by promoting them.
McCabe started his career as an intern at WME and worked his way up from the mailroom to an assistant’s office. He joined Gotham Group in 2018 and now represents a roster of writers and directors with a horror focus, including The Pierce Brothers who wrote and directed 2019’s The unfortunate. During his year and a half in Gotham, Dang worked with clients in the fields of comedy, theater, family, and animation. His entertainment career began at Knott’s Berry Farm before joining WME in the talent department. Kleinman, who arrived at Paradigm Talent Agency’s Gotham group in 2019, appeared in the animated feature Wendell and Wild and will continue to work with Goldsmith-Vein, Stollman, Williams, Eric Robinson and Joseph Vogelsang on the production side.
Gotham Group recently witnessed the departure of managers Tony Gil and Max Goldfarb to join Jairo Alvarado’s Redefine. The announcement also noted that the management and production company was able to maintain a full staff throughout the pandemic.
