NEW YORK21 September, 2017 – SRi’s North American facing brand SRiCheyenne has today announced that Jamie Waldron has joined as a Partner and will launch the firm’s West Coast media and entertainment executive search operations from Los Angeles.

Waldron joins from his previous position of President of Sucherman Group, a management consulting and executive search firm, where he won and executed C-suite-level assignments for a wide range of blue-chip media and entertainment clients.

Before his career as an executive search professional, Waldron was President of Team Entertainment Group, Television Packaging Agent at Creative Artists Agency, EVP Programming at Pearson Television North America, SVP at Gerber/ITC Entertainment and Director, Creative Affairs at Viacom Productions.

Waldron holds a journalism degree from the University of Georgia and is a volunteer responder in the Mayor’s Office of Los Angeles’ Crisis Response Team.

Jay Hussey, CEO of SRiCheyenne, said: “Jamie is a leading expert in the strategic and organizational trends that are driving the ever-quickening evolution of the Media, Content and Entertainment industries. I’m delighted to welcome him to SRiCheyenne as we help our clients navigate the changes and disruptions in their markets. Jamie’s experience on the industry-side, coupled with knowledge gained as a world-class executive search professional, will be of huge benefit to our clients.”

Jamie Waldron, Partner of SRiCheyenne, said: “I’ve witnessed firsthand how technology, audience fragmentation and globalization are all bringing disruptive change to the media and entertainment industry landscape and how companies large and small are seeking new approaches to talent and organization building to survive and thrive.

“SRiCheyenne’s industry expertise, global reach, and boutique approach is unique in the marketplace and gives clients an extraordinary edge. I’m thrilled to be onboard.”
