Mann Gelon Glodney Gumerove Yee (MGGGY)
MGGGY was founded in 1967 as a traditional accounting and tax firm, and after current managing partner Steve Gelon joined 1985, it branched out into business management, which today accounts for a third of its revenue. Clients include top TV series creators, along with major actors, writers, producers, directors, musicians and social influencers. Behind the scenes, the practice boasts a balance of seasoned vets and next-gen employees. Glodney has been with the firm since 1994. Lee joined three years ago, bringing with her a special talent for handling the estates of the rich and famous. Smith came aboard in 2015 and frequently works on his film, TV and music clients with Sroka, who arrived in February.
Pandemic-induced questions: “A lot of clients have been asking us, if revenue is going to take a dip, what kind of liquidity do we need to create to keep people on payroll and rents paid?” Smith says.
