The renamed talent management and movie/TV production entity will continue to pay homage to Bernie Brillstein, who founded the firm and mentored many of its executives and remains active. “It’s been a pleasure seeing this company evolve over the past 38 years,” Brillstein says in the press release. So as of today Brillstein-Grey Entertainment will be known just as Brillstein Entertainment Partners to “embrace the company’s roots while recognize the team that now guides it.” The announcement was made by partner/CEO Jon Liebman and partner Cynthia Pett-Dante, who together acquired the company from former owner Brad Grey in July 2005 after Grey left to become chairman/CEO of the Paramount Motion Picture Group. Bernie founded The Brillstein Company in 1969 and renamed it Brillstein-Grey Entertainment in 1991.
