Three top sports bankers from City National’s Entertainment Banking division — Los Angeles-based SVP and team leader Charles Frazier, and New York’s Boris Gluzberg, SVP and team leader, and Todd Burach, SVP and senior relationship manager — were honored as part of Variety’s annual Dealmakers Impact Report list.
When sports and entertainment took a serious pause due to the pandemic, Gluzberg, Frazier and Burach were able to execute strategies that kept their clients in business. Gluzberg brought in a top business management firm to sign a deal for use of AgilLink, the cloud-based accounting and bill payment platform. Frazier secured nearly $20 million in PPP loans for clients, preserving the jobs of thousands of crewmembers and support staff in the sports, commercial production and entertainment industries. Burach, a leading private banker in the sports arena, provides banking services to three of the top 20 picks in the 2021 NFL draft and his clients signed more than $1 billion in new contracts during the 2021 free-agency period.
