Josh Goldenberg grew up in South Florida where he wanted to be an actor from the age of 7. He went to Northwestern to pursue that path but after two back-to-back summer internships, he realized he'd rather be on the business side of things. He started his career at Marc Platt Productions (LA LA LAND, "WICKED" etc) and Karz Entertainment (VALENTINE'S DAY), which lead to a Vice President position at Red Wagon Entertainment (THE GREAT GATSBY, DIVERGENT). After selling a movie with one of Kaplan/Perrone's clients, they pitched the idea of management and brought him over - he's been there for 12 years now after spending 7 years in development.

He reps writers and directors who work both in film and television - from big movie studios to smaller independent ones, from mainstream broadcast shows to award-winning streaming and cable shows.

Josh was featured on the Hollywood Reporter's Next Gen list, see here.
