Wasserman Profiled As Power Player In Sports, But Some Question "Nice-Guy Persona"
Published July 8, 2013
TOUGH AT THE TOP: While "almost no one will say anything negative about him on the record -- perhaps a sign of how influential he has become -- some of his fellow Hollywood scions in particular grouse that Mr. Wasserman’s nice-guy persona is a well-practiced shtick." A few current and former employees say that he "can be controlling, aloof and impatient." Others "fault his decision at 18 to change his surname to Wasserman from Myers, calling it a cynical effort to capitalize on his grandfather’s legacy." Wasserman said of that notion, "If I had any interest in trading on my grandfather’s success, I didn’t need to change my name to do it" (N.Y. TIMES, 7/7).
