New year, new people! 2016 is off to a great start with some brand new hires and promotions. Bray Entertainment is incredibly excited to add Noel Siegel as Head of Production and Development; Jim Martin as Vice President of Business Development to the team; and proud to promote Dominic DeNardis to Vice President of Development.
Noel Siegel was Senior Vice President of Production and Development at National Geographic Channel based at the network’s headquarters in Washington, D.C. He was responsible for developing series and event specials for the channel, such as the upcoming two-hour film based on Killing Kennedy: The End of Camelot, Bill O’Reilly’s latest New York Times best-selling book with co-author Martin Dugard.
Siegel went to the National Geographic Channel after serving as Senior Vice President of Television Development at the Warner Horizon Television–based production company Next Entertainment. Prior to this, he was Vice President of Production, Development, and Acquisitions at Fox LOOK, Fox Networks Group’s business unit dedicated to international licensing and production of unscripted programing. He joined the company in 2005 as Vice President of Production and Development for Fox Reality Channel, where he helped shape the network’s original programing slate, which included series such as The Academy, Solitary and Paradise Hotel 2.
Before that, Siegel was Vice President of Development and Production at Hallock Healey Entertainment and Director of Production and Development, at CBS Broadcasting International/King World International Productions. He began his television career as a Development Executive at VH1.
Notice how everything is pretty much an app nowadays? Well Bray Entertainment can think of nothing better than to join in on that bandwagon. With Jim Martin as our new Vice President of Business Development, we’ll be heading up a new digital division…drumroll…Brayniac!
For more than 20 years, Jim Martin has been helping organizations match their business needs with the latest technology. Most recently working in the Telecom Expense Management (TEM) space, he focused on cost-savings for Johnson Controls, Time Warner Cable, Quest Diagnostics, Benjamin Moore and SunGard. Jim also spent over a decade helping customers like TIAA CREF, QuickChek, CompUSA, Forbes and the American Red Cross with their IT hardware, software and network security needs. He is thrilled to join Bray, to become an integral part of executing the vision of broadcasting any event from anywhere, live! Giving supporters, family and friends the opportunity to watch and give from anywhere.
“Success starts with relationships.”- Jim Martin
Bouncing from LA to New York, Dom DeNardis has really put his mark on the map of TV while working for networks such as Comedy Central, Lifetime, and FYI. From stitching together ideas for Scrubs, to working with the hot older biddies on Cougartown, Dom has certainly caught the eye of Bray Entertainment, and with new deals in the works, we’re sure he’ll be great as our new VP of Development.
“We’re going, we’re moving…we’re having fun.” – Dominic DeNardis
