Listing of the U.S. 25 Most Influential South Asian executives

Korn/Ferry International, the worlds largest and leading executive search firm, today announced its listing of the U.S. 25 Most Influential South Asian Executives in the Entertainment and Media Industry. The list was created to honor senior executives of South Asian background who have excelled in various roles in the entertainment business.

In announcing the release of the list, Bill Simon, Senior Client Partner and Managing Director of Korn/Ferry Internationals Global Media & Entertainment Practice, said, We have all heard of the magnitude of the Indian entertainment sector, phenomenal success of Indian themed content with a main stream audience, and expansion of Indian companies into Hollywood. What we are celebrating with this list, however, is the remarkable story of talented business executives who have moved through the ranks and now occupy the top rungs of the corporations that control the entertainment sector. Simon, who has personally assisted both Indian and global companies in securing senior corporate talent, worked closely with his colleagues in India to develop and refine the list. While we could have added 25 more names to the list, we believe that those who made the cut represent the very best in their respective areas of focus and expertise, Simon explained.

The individuals on the list will be honored at a Gala Dinner during the 7th Annual Indian Film Festival of Los Angeles (IFFLA) hosted by Globosat Entertainment LLC. Delivering the keynote address at the dinner is Ashok Amritraj, Chairman and CEO of Hyde Park Entertainment, and one of the most successful producers in Hollywood. Amritraj has produced over 100 films for the global audience.

Christina Marouda, Executive Director of IFFLA, observed that this year was particularly significant because of the recent success of Danny Boyles SLUMDOG MILLIONAIRE at the Oscars and high profile corporate acquisitions by Indian companies such as Dreamworks by Mumbai based Reliance Entertainment. We are delighted to be able to put the spotlight on executives of South Asian origin who now manage and influence broad areas of the traditional entertainment business, Marouda noted.
