Jonny
Geller

Jonny Geller joined Curtis Brown in 1993 as an assistant after a short career as an actor. He became a literary agent in 1995 after discovering a novel on the unsolicited pile which went on to sell rights around the world.

He is CEO of Original Talent, the parent company of Curtis Brown agency, Ed Victor Ltd, Fane Productions, Curtis Brown Creative (writing school), Tavistock Wood and Cuba Productions.

He is also Chairman of Curtis Brown and Chair of the books division.

Jonny has always aimed to represent the very best writers in every genre. His list includes a wide range of globally significant writers, from authors of first class best-selling fiction to ground-breaking journalists; from former Prime Ministers, and thought leaders to public figures, business people and actors and musicians writing their memoirs.

Jonny was awarded Literary Agent of the Year Award in 2012 before being shortlisted three times. He consistently appears on Evening Standard’s 1000 Most Influential People in London list and was named amongst Britain's most influential 500 people by Debrett's 500 in association with the Sunday Times in 2015 and in the same year as one of GQ's 100 Most Connected Men in Britain.

He is the author of one book, Yes, But is it Good for the Jews? published by Penguin (2006), and produced a book to raise funds after the 2004 Tsunami entitled New Beginnings (Bloomsbury).

Jonny is assisted by Ciara Finan and Catherine Cho.
