Founder / Chairman / CEO

Meet the man behind the curtain. Kassan isn’t the Wizard of Oz, but he does seem to possess the magical ability to be involved in many behind-the-scenes transactions that involve Madison Avenue, Big Media and Big Technology. His MediaLink consultancy specializes in such things as executive search and agency reviews, often instrumental in finding just the right executive for an important job or matching a marketer with the right media buyer or ad agency. And then there are the networking opportunities and special dinners at events like the Consumer Electronics Show. Kassan has his roots in the world of media investment, but he has parlayed that into a much bigger industry perch. He previously served on California’s State Senate Select Committee on the Entertainment Industry.
