Ex-Gingrich Chief Of Staff Launches Management Co. Following Stacey Dash Fox News DealEXCLUSIVE: After engineering a Fox News contributor deal for actress Stacey Dash, Georgia-based attorney Patrick Millsaps is launching full-fledged talent management company HBS Management with offices in Century City, Atlanta, and Nashville.

Millsaps spent 2012 as Chief of Staff on Newt Gingrich’s presidential campaign before helping Clueless actress Dash parlay her politically charged social media presence into a Fox News contract in May. He’s joining forces with California-based Adam Trahan and Karl Braun to launch HBS, with Trahan anchoring the Century City outpost and Braun heading music clients out of Nashville.

“Our goal is to build an individual brand for each one of our clients that is valuable to them across media platforms – not only film and television,” said Millsaps. HBS is also planting firmly in the Southeast region where Millsaps helped bring Georgia’s first tax incentive law to former Georgia Governor Sonny Perdue.

“Patrick Millsaps understood early the benefits for Georgia aggressively pursuing the entertainment industry as an economic development project,” said Perdue in a statement. “The combination of his business, political and legal skills were helpful in making tax credits a reality in Georgia.” Read More »

Fox News noted Dash sparked controversy during the 2012 presidential election when she endorsed GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney on her personal Twitter account and “subsequently endured heavy criticism for supporting a conservative nominee.”  Dash’s acting career has spanned more than 20 years, including playing Dionne in the 1995 movie Clueless, as well as roles in Renaissance Man, Mo’ Money, and View from the Top, among others.
