The name Management 360 may emphasize management, but since opening the company with five other partners in 2002, Suzan Bymel has gone far beyond mere management of her clients, who include Anne Hathaway, Michelle Pfeiffer, Kiefer Sutherland and Halle Berry.
Thanks to the company’s related production shingles Film 360 and Television 360, Bymel is now a film and TV producer on shows like “Designated Survivor” and her company is behind titles like HBO’s “Game of Thrones.” That’s a long way to go for a company that reportedly kicked off in her dining room, but Bymel’s savvy and persistence, plus a solid comprehension of what the business needs, has kept her on top. Client Hathaway has given her personal credit for opening doors that had been shut to the gamine actress and helping her land grittier, more dramatic roles.
Prior to Management 360, the Chicago native opened her first management company in 1984, and then partnered with former assistant Evelyn O’Neill in 1994. The pair expanded their operations by creating Talent Entertainment Group in 1998 before co-founding 360 four years later.
