Orlando, Florida, March 29, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- IZEA Worldwide, Inc. (NASDAQ: IZEA), today welcomed talent management agency, Kensington Grey, to the company’s newly-established Talent Partner Program.

Every day, brands, influencers, and social media managers are identifying gaps in the ever-evolving arena of content creation and digital marketing. Founded in 2019, Kensington Grey Agency was created to fill one such hole. Toronto-based couple Sean and Shannae Ingleton Smith started the boutique influencer agency as a direct answer to the lack of representation within the industry. In two years, Kensington Grey has accrued a diverse network of over 250 creators, providing full-service solutions and quality Influencer partnerships in both Canada and the United States.

“Over the past year, through the historic events that have occurred globally, necessary conversations for better representation and inclusion in the Influencer Marketing space have been not just requested, but expected, by modern consumers,” said Ted Murphy, IZEA Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “We welcome the opportunity to work closely with Kensington Grey as an official Talent Partner as a means of advancing and evolving the broader Creator Economy inclusive of all voices.”

All invited members to IZEA’s Talent Partner Program, including Kensington Grey, receive enhanced opportunities for sponsorship deal flow through direct collaboration with IZEA’s consultative Managed Service unit, preferred talent inclusion in both the IZEAx and Shake creator networks, first-look availability into IZEA’s proprietary research initiatives, and exclusive briefing sessions. Selected partners and their signed talent will also participate in select co-marketing, press exposure, and future signature events.

“We are thrilled to partner with a pioneer in the influencer marketing industry like IZEA”, said Shannae Ingeleton Smith, founder of Kensington Grey. “Kensington Grey was founded to address the lack of representation in the industry, and our values align perfectly with IZEA, whose mission is to level the playing field for all content creators to be paid their worth by brands. We couldn’t think of a better team to collaborate with and are excited about the opportunities our talented roster of influencers will be exposed to through this partnership.”

IZEA plans to formally welcome additional partners in subsequent announcements. Details pertaining to those members will be made public through newswire, online press center, and companies’ social media channels.
