Simon Pollock, an industry veteran has launched Simon Pollock & Co, focusing on senior level executive search in global media and entertainment.
With 25 years’ experience in senior roles for two Hollywood studios, Disney and Sony, Simon Pollock had a stint of nine years with A&E Networks, establishing its London office and overseeing the launch of The History Channel throughout Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Asia. Most recently he was head of Practice, Media and Entertainment at search firm Heidrick & Struggles.
