MGO Expands Entertainment Business with Merger

Los-Angeles based MGO (FY15 net revenue of $39 million) has strengthened its entertainment business management practice by joining forces with Meschures Snyder Pocras & Levin (MSPL) of Beverly Hills, Calif.

Variety called the move “a sign of further consolidation among Hollywood business management practices,” and cited an MGO client as writer and producer Roberto Orci, whose “Hawaii Five-0” has been airing on CBS since 2010. For its part, MSPL brings to the merger about 100 film and TV clients, including actors, writers, directors and producers.

This is an important milestone in the history of both firms, says MGO CEO and MP Kevin O’Connell. “Victor Meschures and Dusty Snyder are pioneers in the discipline of business management. It’s impossible to measure the value of the knowledge and relationships they bring to the team.”

O’Connell adds that MSPL’s strength in film and television will bolster MGO’s continuing expansion of its entertainment, sports and music practice. MGO brings a wide range of services and systems that extend beyond the capabilities of traditional business management firms.
