Wes Stevens

Wes has advocated for talent as a profession since 1994. He started in Columbus, Ohio at a small agency booking variety acts before joining Talent Group, Inc. (TGI) in Los Angeles in 1995 as an assistant. Seven years later, he acquired TGI’s voice-over department and launched VOX, Inc. Wes has represented an array of dynamic names in film, television, social media and music, alongside brands including Pixar, Disney, DreamWorks, Fox, GE, Apple, Amazon, Taco Bell, LG, T-Mobile and Sprint.

His first booking of note was placing David Hyde Pierce in “A Bugs Life,” Ed Asner in “Up” and his run with Pixar continued with Craig T. Nelson in the explosively successful “Incredibles 2”.  He has loved and lived the journey of his client John DiMaggio as Bender on “Futurama” across three television networks.  In a bittersweet moment, his beloved and recently departed client, Leslie Jordan won a 2023 Webby for his uproarious work on “GetYourGuide”.   

Having built the company off the springboard of his specialization in animation and gaming, the company’s success led to diversification into celebrity endorsements, social media as well as specialties in TTS / AI voices from the original Siri to Alexa’s in numerous global regions.  

VOX has continuously pushed the envelope of technology as a mechanism to empower its clients and better service its buyers.  VOX was the first agency, nationally, to create a non-linear auditioning process, tapping clients’ home studios.  Today these processes are supported by VOX’s own proprietary client management platform for audition and client information management, Virtual VOX.

Diversifying, In 2015, Wes co-founded venture development firm XIT, LLC.  The company accelerates ideas in the media, social technology and digital application spheres at the nexus point of entertainment and tech.  XIT also manages established social brands and IP, building 360 strategies to fully capitalize their brands across television, publishing, licensing and application and vertical development.  The company has represented Castbox, the fastest growing global podcast platform and podcasting network, Kast Media.  Together the companies created an impressive slate of award-winning shows and saw the network rise to number nine globally.  

Wes’ passion is helping talented people create powerful, equitable, and long-term relationships. He thrills at the opportunity to connect the right talented people and ideas with one another.
