Wing to run Cantor Entertainment

Former Nielsen topper tapped prexy and CEO

Former Nielsen Entertainment topper Andrew Wing has been tapped prexy and CEO of Cantor Entertainment, a new wing of Cantor Fitzgerald, a financial services firm that operates the Hollywood Stock Exchange Web site.

Wing, based in Los Angeles, will shepherd the company’s expansion into offering entertainment clients information, marketing, advisory and financial services.

He’ll work closely with the HSX team to adapt the technology of the virtual stock exchange in developing new products.

Cantor acquired HSX in 2001.

Wing reports to Howard Lutnick, chairman and CEO of Cantor Fitzgerald.

“The need for advanced marketing and information services in this space is critical, given the intersection of old media and new digital distribution platforms, as well as the proliferation of entertainment content,” said Laurence Rose, senior managing director of Cantor Fitzgerald. “Andy’s deep knowledge and understanding of the entertainment business, combined with Cantor’s information, technology, and financial capabilities, is a tremendous asset as we pursue strategic opportunities in the entertainment marketplace.”

Wing, who has recently been consulting for entertainment clients, served as president and CEO of VNU’s Nielsen Entertainment. He was a member of the VNU Media Measurement executive board, and managing director, global entertainment for ACNielsen.

He left Nielsen early last year. Before that, he served in senior management, marketing, finance and business development roles at American Express, including head of business development and general manager of sports and entertainment.
