THR's Power Business Managers 2013
While running a firm founded in 1967 with offices in New York and L.A., Gelfand also manages the finances of Bob Dylan, Neil Diamond and Will Smith, among others. In this digital age, he maintains that the process has changed: "There's faster communication with clients and more rapid responses to client needs. It's our responsibility to slow it down a bit. When it comes to financial matters, sometimes it's good to take a step back."
Managing the firm's 215 staffers is just as key as managing clients: "If you think you can do it all, you're not providing good, multiple eyeballs on everything, from a simple check to a complex investment."
