epstein2 copyMediaLinx is managed by industry veteran, President and Chief Marketing Officer, Neal Epstein.

Epstein brings over twenty five years of advertising and marketing experience to the firm with special focus on entertainment marketing. His career has taken him through sales and management training at 3M and Dun and Bradstreet where he held executive positions. He spent 10 years at Scholastic, where as Entertainment Marketing Director he first began to hone his skills in feature film marketing.

It was while there that he sold his first "million-dollar deal". But records are meant to be broken and in 2004, Epstein was the architect on an $18 million media deal bringing Papa John's Pizza together with Paramount Pictures for a co-branded advertising campaign.

Epstein takes special pride in his involvement with in-school marketing programs. His special focus is on programs that entertain while they educate students K-12 by developing movie-based essay contests. "We call it 'edutainment' and our programs inspire and motivate students to participate." says Epstein, then adds, "Not only do we get a high volume of responses, which pleases our marketers, but we receive some of the most intelligent, well-written, sometimes heart-warming essay entries I have ever read."

A graduate of University of Denver, Epstein earned a double-major degree in political science and philosophy. He has been married for 30 years and has three daughters, ages 24, 20 and 17. He is a fifth-generation Houstonian, and now resides in Southern California.
