Rob Weisbach Creative Management is a cross-platform development company, one that provides development, representation, and strategic career management for artists in all media. The company will bring shape and focus to the artist's work, represent it aggressively across all formats, train the artist for media and pursue national exposure on the artist's behalf, and build an overall strategic plan for self-promotion, long-term financial stability and a sustained creative life in the arts.

In addition to providing comprehensive career management for its primary clients, Rob Weisbach Creative Management also offers customized services for artists who are otherwise represented, from editorial consultation and media training, to individualized marketing and publication plans.

Over the course of his twenty-year career in entertainment Rob Weisbach has developed and published a diverse list of high-caliber talent including New York Times bestselling authors Jon Stewart, Brad Meltzer, Jerry Seinfeld, Whoopi Goldberg, Ellen DeGeneres, Paul Reiser, A.J. Jacobs, Bob Schieffer, Anthony Rapp, and Kathy Freston; US Poet Laureate Robert Pinsky and Pulitzer Prize-winner Lucinda Franks; literary stars A.M. Homes, Bruce Wagner, and Elissa Schappell; filmmakers Tim Burton and Ethan Coen; rights advocates Karenna Gore Schiff and Evan Wolfson; photographer Chester Higgins, Jr., painter and nature writer James Prosek, and chef Padma Lakshmi.

In 2008, Weisbach represented his first project as agent, the literary survival memoir Crazy for the Storm by Norman Ollestad, selling world rights to HarperCollins's Ecco imprint. Ollestad's extraordinary book became a New York Times bestseller, has been sold around the world, was chosen by Starbucks as their summer selection and by Amazon as one of the Ten Best Books of 2009, and was optioned by Warner Brothers for film.

"My mother and father, a psychologist and an editor, instilled in me the importance of marshalling one's intellect, compassion, and will to help others achieve their aspirations. For twenty years, my professional life as a publisher has been devoted to promoting my authors' talents. That hands-on experience, along with relationships I've built in national media, film, and television, now will enable me to offer my clients sophisticated, broadly informed representation from the other side of the desk."

"In these times, more than ever, creative artists will need to become the architects of their own success. Over the years I've experienced great satisfaction from helping authors shape their work, focus on what they can do independently to ensure exposure in the marketplace, develop opportunities for themselves beyond the book page, and think beyond the traditional limits of publishing to build an audience in the digital age. Now, I'm looking forward to discovering and developing a new stable of distinctive, dynamic talent and empowering them to marry a rich creative life with good business strategy."
