Independent

Sue is Director of Investor Relations for Slated, Inc. and Managing Member of Slated Securities LLC. Slated is an online marketplace for finance, dealmaking, and networking in the film industry. In addition to managing all activities and communications for the 1,100+ investors on Slated, Sue spearheads investor acquisition and runs Slated’s social media and marketing strategy.

Sue recently co-founded an offshoot entity called Filmonomics Talks, a first-of-its-kind film finance think tank and networking event, whose mission is to create an association of investors in independent film and a larger sustained pool of funding. Sue is interested in bringing greater efficiencies to film finance and driving more and smarter investment into film. Sue’s career in entertainment started in commercial production then led to the William Morris Agency in Beverly Hills, where she worked on some of the firm’s largest deals and also produced and directed a feature-length film and some shorts.

After earning her MBA Sue was a private wealth advisor at Goldman Sachs. Her entrepreneurial spirit then led her to SoFi (Social Finance), where she built and ran the NY sales team, which sourced institutional and high net worth investors for student loan funds. Create communities around student loans ultimately inspired Sue to explore ways to innovate in film financing and packaging.
