Changes at EQAL

Senior Vice President, Business Development and Strategy
Paras Maniar joined EQAL in 2008 as its Senior Vice President, Business Development and Strategy. Prior to joining the company Paras was a consultant in the Los Angeles office of McKinsey & Company, a global consultancy that counsels a broad array of Fortune 500 companies. Aligned specifically with the Media & Entertainment and Telecom & High Tech practices, Paras built expertise in media & technology convergence issues such as mobile video, advanced online advertising, and digital distribution. Previous to McKinsey & Company Paras worked in the Corporate Department of Latham & Watkins and with the High Tech Mergers & Acquisitions Group at JP Morgan Chase & Company.

Paras completed his bachelor's degree in Economics and Political Economies of Industrial Societies for the University of California, Berkeley, during which time he also studied abroad at the Eötvös Loránd University in Hungary and the University of Vienna School of Business in Austria. Paras received a J.D. from Northwestern School of Law and an M.B.A. from the Kellogg School of Management.

Happily married, Paras' wife Payal keeps her husband's global entertainment knowledge fresh with regular screenings of Bollywood's best films.

  1. McKinsey & Company hummmmmm.....

    Those boys do not come cheap.

    Just saying...

  2. That's too bad EQAL was not able to hold onto Kelly Brett - she seemed to have done a great job producing for the KM team.

  3. Must'ave been writing this release instead of the script for the finale.

    Anybody else remember the days when the C's claimed to be simple guys with a web cam just like the rest of us?

  4. That is a bit unfair anon, the creators deserve to have their own company.
    They still are simple guys with a webcam, it's just now their simple guys with a lot more webcams and their own company.
