Chris Montgomery Bender is the head of Prodigy Talent, a Hollywood Talent Agency and a former White House lawyer.

Check out this episode!

Chris Montgomery Bender likes to joke he’s on the third mortgage of his soul. He’s been:

1. White House lawyer
2. Political operative
3. Hollywood talent agent

Those three professions are enough to put anybody down at the bottom of the list of most beloved people. Chris is different though. 

In our podcast; “Interesting People with Bob Brill” he talks about his humble beginnings and how he wanted to do something with his life to make an impact. As a teen-ager he began working for a local politician in Colorado. A savvy learner, he took that all the way up the food chain in the state and then to the national stage with a stop in law school in between.
