Fiona Vickers, Sector Leader (Global)
Few organizations face such complex hiring challenges as media & entertainment firms. The digitization of media allows multiple platforms to now deliver content of constantly shifting value. Media & entertainment companies have watched their revenue models implode, their geographic footprint expand, and their consumers become more demanding and less predictable. It's not for the faint of heart!
For media & entertainment companies, recruiting and retaining top leadership talent is not only key to their success, but critical to their survival.
Our clients "create and distribute" content, thus our work includes areas where content intersects with consumer products & video games, technology, retail & licensing, sports & live entertainment, and across all areas of the digital spectrum including online, mobile, e-commerce, social media and ad networks.
After making significant investments in the media sector, our private equity and venture capital clients trust us to provide them with leadership talent that will ensure security and growth for their portfolio companies.
Our Media & Entertainment Sector provides an experienced team of consultants across the globe with deep industry knowledge and networks. When required we can quickly tap into Heidrick & Struggles' other industry and functional practices.
In addition to search, our experience includes Board development, executive assessment, and succession & human capital planning. We are strategic partners to our clients, providing guidance and insight well in advance of a specific search need.
