File this one under “big #Jeah” for the “Lochtenator.” As announced on his Twitter account late last week, the five-time gold medalist has made a change of agents, signing with Creative Artists Agency (CAA).
CAA becomes Lochte’s third agency of record since he became a professional swimmer. His first agents were at Octagon, who were left behind for a lesser known agent, Erika Wright of Wright Entertainment & Sports. In 1997, Wright was the first runner up in that year’s Miss America Pageant.
Now Lochte has parted ways with the beauty queen for another big agency – CAA. He has done a lot of agent switching in a short period of time. It reminds me of another client that CAA recently acquired, but in a different sport – Andre Smith of the Cincinnati Bengals.
