He Has Powerful Siblings
NBC’s Brian Williams once suggested that the three Emanuel brothers are the most prominent public figures from any family in modern-day America, and when you look at their remarkably impressive CV’s it’s not hard to see why.
The Hollywood super-agent is the youngest of the three, with his eldest brother Zeke being a celebrated oncologist and author who once served as a special health advisor during the Obama administration and is considered a world leader in medical ethics, while his other sibling Rahm is the current mayor of Chicago after previously being one of President Clinton’s Senior Advisors and President Obama’s Chief Of Staff.
Having to follow in the footsteps of his two successful brothers may be part of the reason Ari Emanuel has been so driven to succeed himself, but there has always been a strong bond between the three, and together that makes them a force to be reckoned with.
”Nobody wants to be on the wrong side of Ari Emanuel,” an unnamed TV exec admitted to the NYTimes back in 2009, while Emanuel himself stated during an NBC interview with his brothers that, ”If somebody screws with one of us, or a friend or a company, we will be there to defend it.”
