Jim Sides has launched Eklektric, a specialist consulting firm providing business development and commercial services for the AV and global entertainment industry, in the areas of business development, sales services, marketing and brand development, international distribution consulting, as well as mergers and acquisitions.
“Our mission is to provide our clients with strategic perspective, unbiased advice, new contacts, vision, awareness, creativity and marketing focus, to make essential commercial connections wherever they are needed. In short, to add success to every step our clients take,” Sides said.
“Eklektric’s approach is truly holistic, taking an industry-wide view and drawing on a global network of associates who are recognized experts in their respective fields. While many consulting companies tend to focus on a single discipline, market segment or geographical region, we have a broader perspective, with professional associates worldwide, to provide insights and tools to our clients to reach their full potential, “said Sides.
“Eklektric allows me to offer the many skills that I have developed over my career as a musician, producer, mentor, entrepreneur and senior executive in some of the industry’s most respected brands. I have been so privileged to participate in this incredible industry as it has transformed from humble beginnings to the technical and artistic marvel it is today,” added Sides. “Now I have the opportunity to assist in the advancement of people, products, brands and companies by applying my skills and those of my associates to the industry as a whole.”
