CBS Corporation President and CEO Leslie Moonves will serve as the keynote speaker at Variety’s Dealmakers breakfast on Dec. 2. The event, held in Beverly Hills, fetes the powerbrokers and kingmakers of the entertainment industry and coincides with Variety‘s annual Dealmakers Impact Report, focusing on key players driving the most significant deals in the business.
Variety’s Co-Editor-in-Chief, Claudia Eller, will host the keynote conversation in partnership with Bank of America Merrill Lynch, Hub International and BMW. Execs from leading talent agencies, law firms, banks and production companies will be on hand to hear Moonves discuss the state of the television industry.
“Les Moonves is one of the savviest dealmakers and sharpest executives in the industry, deeply immersed in every level of the business,” says Eller. “His decades at the top are a testament to his commitment and passion for television. We’re thrilled to have the opportunity to learn the secrets of his success — and share them with our audience.”
Moonves joins past keynote speakers including The Walt Disney Company Chairman and CEO Bob Iger, and Chairman and CEO of The Chernin Group, Peter Chernin.
