PENDULUM® Announces the Branding of its Strategic Advisory Services with the Launch of Pendulum Sports & Entertainment

PSE brings decades of experience advising and partnering with leaders in the sports, media, and entertainment ecosystem.

LOS ANGELES–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Pendulum Holdings, LLC (“Pendulum”), a strategic investment and advisory platform, today announced the launch of Pendulum Sports & Entertainment LLC (“PSE”), a dedicated team of senior professionals within Pendulum that provides trusted, strategic advisory services to a formidable generation of brand owners building businesses and partnerships that move and lead culture.

PSE partners with its clients to maximize the value of their highest priority commercial opportunities by providing solution-oriented advice and support premised on rigorous quantitative analysis, comprehensive strategic planning, and long-term, accountable engagement. PSE serves as a transformative bridge between its clients’ brands and their most significant business ambitions and endeavors.

Founded in 2019 by D’Rita and Robbie Robinson, Pendulum seeks to reimagine how great companies are built and redefine who gets to build them. In addition to PSE, Pendulum’s platform also includes an investing vertical, Pendulum Opportunities, that provides strategic capital to growth-stage consumer companies positioned to meet the needs and expectations of an evolving generation of consumers, and a registered broker-dealer, Pendulum Securities, that provides mergers & acquisitions, and capital raising advisory services and execution support.

“The launch of PSE demonstrates continued momentum in our business and is a significant milestone for Pendulum. We are building an extraordinary advisory team of experienced professionals with differentiated and complimentary skillsets, rooted in their authentic understanding and keen sensibility of how the sports, media, and entertainment ecosystem is changing,” said D’Rita and Robbie Robinson, Co-founders of Pendulum. “We are confident this carefully curated team will produce the business building outcomes our clients seek.”

The PSE team includes:

  • Harvey Fine, Managing Director, who previously worked at BDT & MSD Partners, a merchant bank that provides advice and long-term capital through its affiliated investment funds to family and founder-led businesses. At BDT & MSD Partners, Harvey advised and invested alongside some of the most prominent and closely held business owners and their families and helped launch the firm’s Sports Practice, advising families and investors in their ownership of sports teams in the NBA, MLB, MLS, EPL, and the NWSL.
  • Jamie Slade, Managing Director, who previously worked at entertainment law firm Granderson Des Rochers, LLP where she oversaw as a Partner and Head of Fashion, Branding & Lifestyle Practice all phases of talent and brand development, negotiating and structuring some of the most cutting-edge transactions in entertainment and fashion on behalf of talent such as J. Cole, Zendaya, A$AP Rocky, J Balvin, Cardi B, and Amina Muaddi.
  • Michelle Obeso-Theus, Vice President, who previously worked with and served as an advisor to some of today’s most iconic athletes and entertainers, including Kobe Bryant, Michael B. Jordan, Kyrie Irving, and Phil Handy, among others, playing a key role in their current and post-career lives by streamlining business development with post-career goals and providing strategic guidance on pipeline opportunities, partnerships, and philanthropic strategies.

Harvey Fine said, “As an advisor to and investor in some of the most successful US and global family-and founder-owned companies, I played a key role in the continued success and stewardship of their wealth, by building businesses around the brands they conceived. My background combined with the experiences Jamie and Michelle have as trusted advisors for entertainers, athletes, and fashion icons positions PSE to extend differentiated advisory and business building services to a new generation of brand owners, and I am excited to be working alongside them at such a critical moment in the sports, media, and entertainment industry.”

Jamie Slade said, “The ethos of my career in the entertainment and fashion industries has always been protecting my clients’ best interests while maximizing opportunities with long-term value that are aligned with their authentic selves. Having spent over a decade forging new business pathways for talent with cultural impact, I firmly believe that PSE is the answer for ambitious brand builders ready to transition to true business owners. Together with the diverse expertise of the PSE team and the support of the broader Pendulum platform, I look forward to providing thoughtful partnership, empowering those with a desire to be leaders in both culture and business.”

Michelle Obeso-Theus said, “We are witnessing a powerful surge of a wide range of business opportunities across the sports, media, and entertainment ecosystem, and I couldn’t imagine a better time to work alongside colleagues like Harvey and Jamie who together bring decades of experience and the relationships needed to navigate, position, reposition, and scale the growing range of commercial opportunities that clients are seeing at an unprecedented pace. The value of Pendulum and our advisory team lies in our ability to help first generation brand owners pinpoint the problems they seek to solve and provide the playbooks they need to extend into business building.”
