Sucherman Group, a ZRG Company, Expands with Addition of Darren Mooney

Rochelle Park, NJ, June 15, 2022 – Sucherman Group, the top advisory firm for media and entertainment companies globally, welcomes Darren Mooney as Managing Director. Darren brings to the firm a decade of experience across industries, with a particular focus in the areas of Digital Media, Analytics, Advertising, Sales, and Digital Products/Technology. Sucherman was acquired by ZRG in June 2021.

Before joining Sucherman, Darren served as Executive Senior Partner at Talentfoot Executive Search, where he was instrumental in scaling the firm’s revenue by 400% over three years, having led the firm in billings in 2020 and 2021. He also established Talentfoot’s Media & Analytics Practice. Earlier, he led all executive-level searches for The Washington Post and was accountable for global talent acquisition in the areas of PR, HR, Finance, digital advertising sales, technology, marketing, and analytics.

“Darren has exhibited a knack for garnering impressive sales and scaling profits for both search firms and his clients,” Larry Hartmann, CEO of ZRG, said. “In addition to building the international sales and marketing function for The Washington Post, he successfully recruited a number of leaders at the C-suite and VP levels – a track record he is certain to build upon with Sucherman.”
