Executive search firm ZRG acquired the Sucherman Group, a provider of executive search, leadership development and organization design focused on the media and entertainment industry.

Sucherman has offices in New York, Los Angeles and London. Its clients include Disney, ViacomCBS and WarnerMedia.

“They have built an incredible team and are content sector experts who bring clear value to every engagement,” ZRG CEO Larry Hartmann said. The company had also recently acquired Turnkey Sports, which operates in the sports sector.

Sucherman Group was founded in 1986 by Stuart Sucherman, who will continue to lead the organization post-acquisition along with CEO Erik Sorenson.

Sorenson is the former president of MSNBC and former executive producer of the CBS Evening News.
