Market P.R. markets lists to Cushman

Aaron D. Cushman & Associates acquired the client and phone lists of Market to Market, the predominantly entertainment p.r. firm, for an undisclosed amount.

The 40-year-old Cushman of Chicago had been in discussions with Market to Market since January.

Cushman had wanted to boost its West Coast operations, open an office in New York and expand its entertainment portfolio, said Billy Kahn, former president for Market to Market.

“That made us the perfect candidate since we have several sizable entertainment clients and offices in both New York and L.A.,” said Kahn, now an exec VP and general manager of Cushman’s L.A. office. Market to Market was dissolved.

Market to Market clients included Turner Pictures Worldwide, Eastman Kodak, Worldvision, Ulysse Entertainment, MCEG and PFG Entertainment Group (formerly Pangea).

Kahn said he approached Cushman and closed the deal on June 30. Cushman took the client and phone lists and 10 of the 12 Market to Market employees.
