Michael Mand

CCO
CAA
United States



Michael Mand heads all corporate communications for CAA — world’s largest entertainment and sports agency that represents some of the most recognized names and faces on the planet. Of course, CAA has expanded beyond talent representation to strategic marketing and other startup ventures to diversify its revenue streams. 

Mand joined in 2001 after an unconventional start to his career. He started his career at Burson-Marsteller in New York — followed by a string of “odd jobs” that contributed to the depth and thoughtfulness Mand brings to the craft. After moving to Los Angeles, he worked at MSLGroup before joining CAA. 

He leads a team responsible for all external and internal communications, in addition to a series of other corporate functions. He also advises high-profile talent, sports clients, and corporate clients on a range of strategic communications issues.
