Councilmember Brock to Be Inducted in Hall of Fame for Artist Managers

The Personal Managers Hall of Fame as a Celebration of Illustrious Careers in Entertainment, Music, and Talent Management.

Phil Brock’s work of representing actors via his company, Studio Talent Group, is set to be honored with an induction of the Santa Monica Councilmember into the Personal Managers Hall of Fame.

The ceremony will take place Oct. 25 at Las Vegas’ Golden Nugget Hotel and Casino. Brock boasts over 25 years of experience representing actors in various domains, including commercials, film, television and theater with Studio Talent Group. His roster includes renowned actors including Pat Harrington Jr., Richard Moll and Mary Woronov.

Born in Santa Monica on Christmas Day 1953, Brock has taught in several Santa Monica and Los Angeles schools, coached baseball and football teams, volunteered as a member of committees and non-profits, and transitioned to talent management in 1994 to open Studio Talent Group in Santa Monica. He was elected to Santa Monica City Council in 2020.

Earlier this year, Brock was selected to serve on the National League of Cities (NLC) 2023 Council on Youth, Education, and Families, as well as the NLC’s 2023 Public Safety and Crime Prevention Federal Advocacy Committee. In July, Brock made headlines after being assaulted on the 1300 block of Third Street Promenade by a man tearing apart signage from a storefront. 

“The Personal Managers Hall of Fame celebrates illustrious careers in entertainment, music, and talent management,” said NCOPM National President Clinton Ford Billups Jr. in a release. “The 2023 inductees reflect the contributions, ethics, and history of personal management that the Hall of Fame acknowledges and honors.”

Brock will be inducted alongside people including Chris DiPetta (owner of Atlanta’s famous comedy club The Punchline), Shirley Grant (who guided careers of The Jonas Brothers and Christina Ricci) and David Spero (who oversaw careers of Bad Company, Billy Bob Thornton and Joe Walsh).

The latest inductees will join the ranks of 50 current members of the Hall of Fame including Sid Bernstein, Bernie Brillstein, Brian Epstein, Ken Kragen, Doc McGhee, Patricia McQueeney, Dolores Robinson, Jack Rollins, David Sonenberg and others.
