Founded in 1975, CAA is one of Hollywood's top talent agencies (with William Morris and International Creative Management).

Location of Offices

"IN JANUARY 2007 Creative Artists Agency (CAA), which manages George Clooney, Julia Roberts, Brad Pitt and other film-industry luminaries, opened its new offices on Avenue of the Stars in Century City, Los Angeles. As famous actors and directors file into the marble-lined entrance to strike lucrative film contracts, even more serious money is being made upstairs.

"The 12th floor is occupied by Ares, which has $37 billion of funds invested in private equity, high-yield bonds and other corporate debt. One floor down is Canyon Partners, an alternative-investment firm that manages $18 billion. The CAA building is also home to Imperial Capital, a boutique investment bank. All three firms can trace their origins to Drexel Burnham Lambert, an investment bank that collapsed into bankruptcy in 1990, fatally wounded by an insider-trading scandal." [1]
