Hollywood Reporter’s Power Business Managers Event Returns – The Hollywood Reporter

The Hollywood Reporter will recognize the best fund managers in the entertainment industry on October 19 at its 12th annual Power Business Managers Breakfast.

This year’s event will honor Richard Feldstein of NKSFB as THR‘s 2022 Business Manager Icon, an award created in 2018 to recognize the achievements of an exceptional individual in the field. Feldstein has been a trusted advisor to music, TV and film personalities for nearly 50 years.

Breakfast coincides with THR the magazine’s annual Money issue (on newsstands Oct. 19), which spotlights Hollywood’s top business leaders. It will feature a keynote conversation with Joanna Popper, CAA’s Metaverse Director, about opportunities for talent in the new digital frontier.

City National Bank – which has been a go-to bank for Hollywood for 70 years, working with clients in film, television, music and sports – is the breakfast’s main sponsor.

Last year’s virtual event brought together the industry’s top dealmakers, including Ken Ziffren, Dan Limerick and Patricia Laucella, to discuss the state of talent negotiation in the era of the pandemic box office, daily streaming releases and more.
