Media & Entertainment

For media and entertainment companies, recruiting and retaining top leadership talent is not only the key to success, but critical for survival. Heidrick & Struggles’ Media & Entertainment sector experts focus on helping companies realize their investment today by delivering the right leadership and developing those leaders for tomorrow.

Few organizations face such complex hiring challenges as those in the media and entertainment industries. The digitization of media allows multiple platforms to now deliver content of constantly shifting value. Traditional companies have watched their revenue models implode, their geographic footprint expand, and their consumers become more demanding and less predictable. At the same time, technology innovations have changed how media and entertainment is consumed and created new segments and opportunities for growth across the globe.

We know talent and understand the crucial nature of future talent so we can connect the best business leaders with the best companies based on their strengths and assets.

We understand  that our clients "create and distribute" content broadly; thus, our work also includes areas where content intersects with consumer products and video games, technology, retail and licensing, sports and live entertainment, and across all areas of the digital spectrum including online, mobile, eCommerce, social media and ad networks.
