Thunderbird Entertainment has appointed Archie Comics Publications alum Jérôme Levy to its board of directors.
At Archie Comics, the company behind the comic book series of the same name and the Netflix series Riverdale and Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, Levy was vice chairman. He oversaw aspects of TV and film production, publishing, digital, international expansion, licensing and merchandising.
Prior to joining Archie Comics, Levy was managing director of Houlihan Lokey’s Technology, Media & Telecom Group. He spearheaded an array of investment banking, strategy and capital-raising engagements for companies throughout the entertainment business, including Endemol, Banijay and Tinopolis.
“It is with great excitement that we begin 2022 with the addition of Jérôme Levy to our board,” said Marni Wieshofer, interim board chair. “He offers a tremendous wealth of media and entertainment industry operating, investment banking and capital markets knowledge, which will enhance our board as we collectively support Thunderbird’s execution of the company’s long-term growth plan. I had the privilege of partnering with Jérôme at MESA and Houlihan Lokey, and I am thrilled to be working with him again.”
Thunderbird CEO and Board Director Jennifer Twiner McCarron added, “Our teams are focused on producing quality programming and global brands while investing in owned-IP and exploring strategic M&A opportunities. We welcome Jérôme to the team and look forward to his valuable contributions to our board and company.”
