The Cartel calls in Saul
US production, finance and management firm The Cartel has appointed a veteran feature film and television agent as manager/producer.
Ryan Saul, a former head of the Agency for the Performing Arts’ motion picture literary department in the US, has joined the LA-based firm.
Saul began his career as an executive assistant at The Walt Disney Company and was most recently a motion picture literary agent at Paradigm Talent Agency.
In addition, Bradford Bricken has been promoted to partner at The Cartel, having been a manager there since 2014.

It was founded in 2011 and is run by partners Stan Spry, Jeff Holland, Evan Corday, Geoff Silverman, Bricken and Eric Woods.
