WME today announced that Adam Bulleid, Carolyn Massey and Bernard Tyler have joined the company as agents in the brand partnerships division.
In their new roles, Adam will work across WME’s music and talent roster, while Carolyn and Bernard will focus on the agency's robust and growing Hip-Hop and R&B roster.
Prior to WME, Adam served as VP, business development for Globe, a division of Universal Music UK. He will be based in the UK for WME. Adam began his career at music magazine NME. He spent more than seven years at Universal Music Group (UMG) working predominantly across the UK roster for brand partnerships, sync and music integrations.

Before joining WME, Bernard served as executive, brand consulting at CAA Sports where his work consulting brands on their sports and entertainment partnerships included EA Sports, Canada Goose, Pizza Hut and Tissot. Bernard most recently led an EA Sports FIFA North America initiative with Adidas to launch a limited custom shoe with the release of the game.
The hires come on the heels of the hires of Ikenna Ezeh and Andrés Paz Micheo, both of whom joined the WME Brand Partnerships team last year with a focus on music. The agency also hired Francesca Ballentyne in the UK with a focus on general talent Brand Partnerships last year.
