Rob Amir joins Vine Alternative Investments

Former Clear Scope, Sony exec will be based in L.A.

After financial advisory firm Clear Scope Partners closed shop this summer, former managing director Rob Amir has found a new home with New York-based private equity firm Vine Alternative Investments.

Hire marks Vine’s first exec appointment outside Gotham. The firm, co-founded by managing partner Jim Moore and partners Bill Lambert and Steven Kovach in 2007, focuses on media investments with a heavy emphasis on film.

“We’ve known Rob a long time and we’re very excited to bring someone of his caliber aboard to help us grow the firm and expand our presence in California,” Moore told Variety.

Amir will focus on transaction analytics as he helps to expand the firm’s Los Angeles-based operations. Those have included investing in Melrose II, Paramount’s most recent co-investment vehicle that has backed pics including the “Transformers” franchise.

“I am very excited about joining the dynamic and experienced team at (Vine) to help expand their presence in Los Angeles,” Amir told Variety. “They’re one of a handful of investors who have a proven track record of consummating complex transactions in the entertainment space through the recent economic downturn. Their knowledgeable approach perfectly positions them as a long-term capital partner for both industry operators and senior lenders.”

Before Clear Scope, Amir worked in deal analysis at Sony Pictures.
