Global Reach, Vertical Depth

Led by Ethan E. Jacks and John C. Bowen, our senior team has over 50 years of combined experience in digital media, technology and investment banking. We have advised on more than 35 mergers and acquisitions in the media sector worldwide, comprising an aggregate transaction value well over $1 billion, and spanning our five primary market segments: video, audio, broadcast, cinema and new media markets.
Domain Expertise and Operational Experience
We are passionate about the media industry and the profound paradigm shifts taking place in the technology landscape. We have experienced these changes first hand. From 1999 to 2006, Ethan Jacks served as a senior executive for digital media icon Avid Technology, while its market value grew from $400 million to $2.5 billion. John Bowen spent 12 years working for IT industry leaders before becoming an industry securities analyst. He accurately predicted in Wall Street research reports that the media technology industry would dramatically shift from custom analog/digital systems to general-purpose, network-based IT solutions running media-oriented software.
