Jim Bethmann
Managing Partner
TMT & IT Services


The media and entertainment industries have seen a great deal of change in the last decade. Technology has completely changed how we consume information, leading to the creation of entirely new sectors and platforms. The internet, mobile capability and social networking, are changing how, where and when we consume information. Media and entertainment companies must develop and execute strategies to keep up with the rapidly-evolving marketplace.

Our highly specialized team of partners fully understands the nuances of this fast-changing discipline, and the issues our clients face in attracting and retaining the right leaders. We are able to attract, influence and maintain candidates that can deliver critical value and open the doors to new opportunities for our customers.

We have made placements with both traditional and digital media companies, as well as sports networks and teams, across all disciplines: programming and production, ad sales, and development, marketing, research, corporate communications, legal & business affairs, human resources, technology and business development.

We are also frequently called in to work with companies that are emerging or undergoing a transition or at some key inflection point.

Ours is a process and formula that has been honed over 40 years of business, and has consistently produced high quality results for our clients. Our placements have had a solid track record of longevity and accomplishment within their organizations, with years of tenure and promotion after they are hired.

Additionally, we are able to be much more nimble and comprehensive in our approach because we don’t have the blockage or off-limits issues that many of the larger executive recruiting firms face.

Above all else, our team has a shared philosophy of serving our clients well beyond their expectations. This focus on exceeding expectations, on delivery excellence and passionate attention to detail has resulted in the development and maintenance of close, trusted relationships on a global level.
