In a major coup, New York-based DeWitt Stern Group hired entertainment industry brokerage kingmaker Richard Eisenberg and two colleagues away from Aon/Albert G. Ruben, long the dominant force in entertainment brokerage.
"This fits into our model of client-centered orientation in our niche businesses," said DeWitt Stern COO David Paige. "This philosophy attracted Richard and his team just like it drew Conte Moore and his group several years ago (from Marsh)."
Eisenberg has one of the largest and most prestigious books of business in the entertainment industry. The two colleagues joining him in the move to DeWitt Stern are Christina Born and Jennifer Bond.
Eisenberg will do business from the West Coast where he historically has been based but also out of DeWitt Stern's New York office. "This allows him to handle risk in Europe and other parts of the world with more ease," said Paige.
Dewitt Stern entertainment broker Peter Marshall, a 2007 Risk & Insurance® Power BrokerTM who was instrumental in signing on Eisenberg and his team at DeWitt Stern, said: "Richard is somebody I've admired for a long time. I'm really happy to learn from him and combine efforts with him and his team. They're superb people."
