Pepper Tree Entertainment is proud to announce the successful launch of CATM’s new model management division CATM NY Model.
CATM NY Model will continue to be represented and advised by Melody Kulesza and Dan Pepper of Pepper Tree Entertainment and Pepper Law Group and will be run by the following team:
Jason Konrad – Managing Partner
Jason was the Head Booking Agent at Choice Model and Talent Management (CMT) NY for over 7 years. While at CMT, Jason learned all sides of the modeling business. He was responsible for everything from scouting new faces and developing talent and client relationships to less glamorous but equally important back office tasks, such as accounting, invoicing and website maintenance. While at CMT, Mr. Konrad developed his skills as a photographer. To date, he has shot for magazines such as Elle, GQ Italy, Maxim, Cocoon, Forbes and Karin and Raoul.
Prior to becoming an agent, Mr. Konrad had a 5 year career as a lifestyle and commercial model. He brings this perspective as a former model and combines this with his extensive experience as an international soccer player and coach. It is this diverse background and skill set that uniquely qualifies Jason Konrad to bridge the ultra-competitive fields of entertainment, fashion and sport.
John is the co-founder and creative director of CATM New York. He has designed and art directed many high profile projects for personal and corporate clientele including Disney, News Corporation, Elizabeth Arden and BlackRock. He has designed for sites implemented in content management systems and has been featured in numerous publications. He brings to the table 16 years of design experience.
David is the co-founder and principal of CATM New York. He has curated shows for the past 10 years, including Mick Rock, Russell James, Nona Hendryx and A.S. Kandinsky. He was the driving force behind the not for profit organization, Fund Art Now. He has dedicated his philanthropic efforts to the encouragement and development of the arts without prejudice.
John Magzalcioglu – Executive Director
