Brian Deevy
Title: Chairman/CEO, RBC Daniels
Last Year: #77
Age: 53 and aging fast!
Education: Dartmouth College, BA; Tuck School at Dartmouth College, MBA; on-the-job training from Bill Daniels!

Why Him? Despite the banking crisis and credit freeze, Deevy keeps RBC Daniels closing deals that allow independent operators to buy and sell systems and bring advanced services to subscribers. Daniels guides operators on such esoteric options as stock splits and buy backs. The firm also helps clients with intellectual property, such as advising Rainbow on its sale of the Lifeskool and Sportskool VOD properties to Grace Creek Media.

Worth Watching: Deevy’s mentor, Bill Daniels, helped build the cable industry with creative financial solutions. In today’s fiscal climate, how will Daniels’ spirit guide Deevy’s choices?

Year Ahead:
Until liquidity returns to the capital markets, times will be tough for RBC Daniels.
