Sports & Entertainment


Increased Sophistication. Global Mandates.
Focus on Culture. High Visibility. Data-Driven.

As the proliferation of sophisticated financial investment has increased in the sports and entertainment industry over the past decade, so, too, has the need for complementary global leadership and talent. More than ever, organizations in the world of sport and entertainment face challenging and high-profile front-office and on-field personnel obstacles that require quantitative decision-making analytics to accompany diverse, deep, and modern candidate pools that will impact the organizational culture in a positive manner. With rapid changes to the industry – from e-sports and gaming to evolving fan content consumption patterns and platform distribution models – sport and entertainment entities are faced with new and fresh talent silos that require innovative recruitment and evaluation.
