Sports, Media and Entertainment

The sports, media, and entertainment industries are shifting fundamentally—and so must how you conduct business. Competition has never been more intense. Innovation is proceeding at a formidable pace and technology is presenting both substantial threats and tantalizing new opportunities. Many traditional business models are either not sustainable or no longer relevant. Customer wants and needs are evolving dramatically. The tax and accounting landscape is evolving. The array of business relationships and new markets available to you is global. And, all of this transformation is occurring against the backdrop of a constantly shifting and challenging economic and regulatory environment, making sound financial and business guidance more of a necessity than ever before.

While the attributes that normally define individuals in the Creative & Performing Arts—emotional, passionate, risk-taking—are generally not those readily identified with accounting firms, at KBL we have developed the skills and insights that allow us to effectively bridge these two disparate worlds.
