Los Angeles - Napoli Management Group, a Blue Equity portfolio company, is pleased to announce that Seth Mayeri has joined the company. He will serve as both a talent agent and the head of Napoli’s New York City office.
Seth has been representing talent in news, sports, and entertainment for 25 years. Since 2006, he has been a co-owner and agent at Evolution Media Talent. Seth brings with him a group of very successful clients in all facets of the industry.
Seth began his career in 1993 at Athletes and Artists, a prominent boutique management firm that represented high-profile broadcasters and professional athletes. He remained an agent with the company as it grew to become Marquee Group and eventually SFX.
Seth left SFX in 2005 and soon after he co-founded Evolution Media Talent with several business partners.

He has launched the careers of numerous prominent television personalities.
