Clear Scope appoints new director

Ex Sony finance exec Rob Amir joins Century City firm

Entertainment investment advisory Clear Scope Partners has appointed former Sony finance exec Rob Amir as a director of the Century City, California, firm.

Amir will report to Clear Scope managing partner Clark Hallren.

"His in-depth knowledge of the current economics of the film business and his well researched opinion of industry trends will further enable Clear Scope to provide our clients with current 'best of class' thinking," Hallren said.

Prior to joining Sony five years ago, Amir was a real estate investment-banking specialist with JPMorgan Chase and Bank of America.

Investment firm Rizvi Traverse Management -- a controlling shareholder in the ICM talent agency -- formed Clear Scope last year to advise and help arrange financing for a range of entertainment and media companies.
