At Elevate Talent, Moulton will be responsible for leading the division to specialize in talent strategy consulting, including recruitment, retention, performance optimization and organization design. She also will serve on Elevate’s women’s leadership committee, which seeks to develop opportunities for women at the company.
“I was inspired to join Elevate among other competitors because of the ambition to build a different-in-class organization, founded and led by experienced industry leaders, who look at the sports and entertainment world through a progressive and inclusive lens,” Moulton said in a press release Monday.
Elevate has some 175 clients, including English Premier League club Everton and the U.S. Tennis Association. Its investors include the San Francisco 49ers, Harris Blitzer Sports & Entertainment, Oak View Group, Arctos Sports Partners and Live Nation.
“The formation of Elevate Talent has long been a design for our agency,” said chairman and CEOP Al Guido, “for which it was critical to identify a leader with renowned experience and relationships across sports, entertainment, media and technology to maximize the notable convergence and talent crossover between industries.”
