ABOUT THE SPEAKER:

 

Adrian Ward is the Senior Vice President of Entertainment Industries Division for Pacific Mercantile Bank.  Adrian joined the pioneering entertainment lender The Lewis Horwitz Organization (LHO) in 1991, where he was involved in the development and structuring of some of the first bank production loans based on international sales contracts.  In the following years he was instrumental in the risk analysis that led to the first ever gap finance transactions and rapidly became one of the leading lenders within the unit.  In 1998 Adrian returned to his hometown of London, England as LHO's European Representative, where he specialized in packaging multi-party co-production transactions involving many of the available European tax incentives.  Returning to Los Angeles in 2005 as the Portfolio Manager for ICB Entertainment Finance, he was responsible for oversight of production loans with an aggregate value of approx. $200,000,000.  Titles funded at LHO/ICBEF included, "Big Fat Greek Wedding," "Monster," and "The Tudors."  In April 2008, he became Senior Vice President of National Bank of California's Entertainment, Sports & Media Department and provided financing for over 60 films, representing over $175,000,000 in production budgets, in over four years including "The Tempest", "Red Dog" and "The Ward".  In January, 2013, Adrian joined Pacific Mercantile Bank (PMB) where he is tasked with building upon the bank's existing entertainment portfolio to take advantage of the numerous relationships he has built over 23 years in the business. Adrian's breadth of knowledge, amassed over approximately 700 film and TV transactions, gives PMB the ideal platform to become an industry-leading institution in the increasingly complex world of entertainment finance.  Adrian, a UK native and now a resident in Los Angeles, enjoys time with his family and on the golf course.
