Media, Entertainment & Sports

The constant innovation at the intersection of digital and mobile is revolutionizing society’s appetite for content. To take advantage of this opportunity, content-centric enterprises must reorganize themselves around monetization, distribution, and the user experience. This radical shift is creating new organizations, roles, and cultures for both the disruptors driving the change and the companies with legacy assets.

Egon Zehnder’s Media, Entertainment & Sports Practice is the largest practice of its kind in the world. We have decades of experience advising founders, CEOs, and boards of directors on how to implement their strategies through people, organizations, and cultures. Our clients include the world’s leading content disruptors, high-growth companies seeking acceleration, and long-established firms adapting to a digital environment. We will spend the time and effort to find the solution you need — not for today, but for the future. We are not interested in preserving the status quo.

Working closely with our colleagues in the Digital and Consumer practices, we bring provocative insights and extensive networks that go far beyond the usual ideas and candidates. We help our clients redesign their organizations, then find, recruit, and develop leaders. We help the nominating committees of public company boards identify, assess, and recruit board candidates, and we work with private company boards taking on their first independent members. We partner with investors to find operating executives who can drive return on investment, and we build digital advisory boards to guide boards and management teams though transitions.

With our deep experience in the field, we work with you as a peer, because we know that leadership is what matters.
