Event Details


Social Media Club Los Angeles is thrilled to announce its February 18 panel, "Ask The Executive Recruiters." This intimate question and Answer session will put two of Southern California's premiere social media/digital headhunters in the hot-seat. 

Freelancers, full-timers, job hunters -- everyone will benefit from a dialogue with our panelists from Sunset Entertainment Partners, a search firm with top tier clientele, dedicated to recruiting next generation leaders for the entertainment and digital media industries. Everyone is welcome and encouraged to come armed with their biggest career-related queries. 

RSVP soon as seating will be limited. 




Shayne Lightner brings over twenty-five years’ experience in executive recruiting and has been responsible for conducting senior level and c-suite search work in the entertainment and digital media industries. He has conducted hundreds of senior level searches in entertainment and new media.  Mr. Lightner was Managing Director, Global Entertainment, Media and Technology Practices for Russell Reynolds Associates, where he helped build and grow a media and entertainment division. Prior to that, Mr. Lightner was Head of Executive Talent for Idealab. Mr. Lightner joined Idealab from Korn/Ferry International, where he was a Managing Director of the Media and Entertainment Practice in the Los Angeles office and a member of the firm’s advanced technology practice.


Jennifer Bedford’s executive search career spans many years as well.  Prior to joining Sunset Entertainment Partners, Ms. Bedford trained at Korn/Ferry International in their Los Angeles-based Media and Entertainment practice, and then maintained a practice successfully conducting senior level searches in digital, consumer-facing and early-stage web platforms including eCommerce and eLearning brands. She services and recruits broadly within digital entertainment & media, online product development, social marketing and communications platforms with a consumer focus.
