WEM,Inc., was founded by personal talent manager, Addison Witt in 2006. The first phase of the talent management company was simply called Witt Management, formed in 2000 at the urging of former talent agent, and owner of Identity Talent Agency, Erik DeSando. With only a handful of actors, Addison Witt set up a 4-phase generation of 10 child actor clients. In each phase, actors were placed with talent agents allowing them to grow into TV and film roles as novices.
