MEET OUR CO-FOUNDERS

JEFF JACOBSON

Jeff Jacobson has been in the talent business since 2007, when he embellished the resume of his young nightclub promotion company and convinced Al Gore to speak at his university.

 

Since then, he has organized and brokered hundreds of events around the world, working with the likes of General Colin Powell, Sir Richard Branson, Rt. Honourable Stephen Harper and Georges St. Pierre. He really wants to book Larry David but he won’t answer his calls.

 

He switched from promoter to agent in 2009, and founded Jeff Jacobson Agency in 2013.

 

Jeff is a hyperactive consumer of media, particularly obsessed with American politics and rap music, and tries to refresh Twitter no more than every 5 minutes.

JEFF LOHNES

Jeff Lohnes got his start in the entertainment business running the most impressive high school dances in Southwestern Nova Scotia. They were fantastic. Fast forward a few years, he was coordinating a folk festival, moved on to book rock bands and host rap battles, and by 2005 booked his first speaker – a young(er) Justin Trudeau.

 

Over the past ten years, Jeff has split his time between working behind the scenes as an event organizer and marketer and pursuing his true passion as a talent agent. From politicians and city builders to famous athletes, actors and influencers, Jeff’s broad interests are at home in the fast and diverse world of speaker and talent representation.

 

Outside the office, Jeff is the Programming Chair of TEDxToronto; he’s an above average cook, a Scrabble enthusiast and a very amateur, but very eager, hockey player.
