Mark Patricof


Mark Patricof has advised and invested in a wide range of leading traditional and digital media and entertainment companies and transactions. He previously served as Managing Director and Co-Head of the Technology, Media, & Telecom practice at Houlihan Lokey, a publicly traded global investment bank. Notable transactions include advising on the highly publicized bankruptcy auction sale of Gawker Media to Univision for $135 million, and the sale of iconic concert venue Webster Hall to AEG Presents and Brooklyn Sports and Entertainment. 

Prior to that, Mark co-founded MESA Global, a boutique investment bank focused on providing M&A advisory, private placement and structured finance services to high-growth companies across the media and entertainment landscape. MESA advised on over 80 transactions including some of the most notable deals in the sector: Colony Capital’s acquisition of Miramax, the sale of Songza to Google, the sale of IndiaGames to Disney, structured finance transactions for Relativity and IMAX, and equity finance transactions for Blue Man Group and FanDuel. Additionally, MESA advised multiple global corporations, including Discovery Channel, Time Inc., and Viacom.  MESA was acquired by Houlihan Lokey in 2015.

In 2012 he launched MESA Ventures, an early stage venture fund focused on e-commerce, advertising technology and digital content. The fund invested alongside established and top-tier early stage VC firms, combining a unique data-driven ranking system with a co-investment strategy to create an “indexing” approach to seed stage investing.

Mark was a co-founder of <kpe>, an incubator/digital studio that financed, designed, and built businesses for clients such as the BBC, CBS, Disney, Hearst and Viacom. He served as President and CEO of the company until it was sold to Omnicom.

Mark began his career at Creative Artists Agency (CAA).
