Brandon Sharp
Founder - AGENDA Management & Production

Brandon Sharp’s work has spanned entertainment, finance, politics, and natural foods. After graduating from Yale with a degree in Political Science, Brandon worked as an analyst for Barclays in New York before deciding to work for President Obama’s reelection campaign in 2012. He worked in the Chicago headquarters on the Advance desk, which planed all the logistics for hundreds of campaign events, concerts and rallies, engaging artists from Bruce Springsteen to Jay-Z. He continued this work at the White House and First Lady’s Office in the Obama Administration, producing events such as the first College Signing Day in Detroit, a national incentive that Michelle Obama continues to promote and participate in annually. Brandon was also a member of the founding team of Birch Benders, a natural food brand that started as his college roommate’s idea that was recently acquired by Sovos Brands. In 2018, Brandon began working in ICM’s political division, representing and servicing clients from Spike Lee to Regina King to Van Jones to Khalid to curate their work in the politics and activism space. In early 2020, he founded Agenda Management and Production with a roster of talent and projects that seek to generate more equity, representation, and minority ownership in the entertainment business. Brandon plays piano and is an avid tennis player and yogi. He played rugby at Yale.
