Stokoe spent five years as a theatrical agent at Kazarian, Spencer, Ruskin & Associates, which is now Kazarian, Measures, Ruskin & Associates, and before that she worked for a couple of years in the youth commercial department at Abrams. Stokoe left the agency side of the business to pursue oppprtunities as a producer and expand her skills in that arena, working for several years at Ovation TV as a producer and manager overseeing production and post production.
Stokoe says she enjoys the producing side of the business and intends to continue working as a producer, but misses representing talent. Thus the move into managing which is perfectly suited for and compliments both activities.
"Leslie is a great addition to our team," said Earnest Harris. "We are absolutley thrilled to have someone who brings so much to our company. She has worked as an agent for years, so she knows that side of things inside and out, and she also brings many contacts from her years doing that work, in addition to all her expertise as a producer. Very excited to be working with her."
Stokoe begins work at Harris Management immediately.
