Ron
Meyer

Vice Chairman

While Meyer might be best remembered as good cop to Michael Ovitz’s bad cop at CAA, he’s spent the lion’s share of his career atop a more far reaching showbiz empire. In 2013, after 18 years as president and COO of Universal Studios, he became vice chairman of its parent, NBCUniversal, providing strategic guidance on everything from its portfolio of film and television assets — including DreamWorks Animation, a $3.8 billion acquisition he helped engineer in 2016 — to its global theme park businesses. A high school dropout, he began his entertainment career as a messenger for the Paul Kohner Agency after serving in the U.S. Marines, and in 1975, with just five years served at William Morris, he co-founded CAA with four fellow agents.
