Meet an eOner.

Meet Jaime Rigal, based in Santa Monica. He leads financial and operational planning and analysis across our Television business – no small feat!

How did you start your career at eOne?
I started my career at eOne in April 2016. At the time, I was the Chief Financial Officer of The Mark Gordon Company, a leading independent television and film studio, and subsidiary of eOne. In 2018, I transitioned to a senior corporate finance, strategy, and operations executive role within eOne.

What’s a typical day at eOne for you?
No two days are the same! My day-to-day work is essentially broken down into three buckets: Financial Planning & Analysis (FP&A), Content Planning & Analysis (CP&A) and Production Operations and Finance & Accounting.

On the FP&A side, I lead the team responsible for short and long-term business planning and reporting, which includes 3-year budgeting and forecasting, monthly and quarterly reforecasts, and half-year and annual reporting to our parent company, Hasbro. (Among other things!)

On the CP&A front, in support of the CFO, I provide television operating input to and strategy oversight of the team that’s responsible for content deal analysis, including greenlights, and general deal analysis.

Then there’s Production Operations and Finance & Accounting. In this capacity, I develop and execute long-term strategies and implement operational efficiencies and processes for various departments across Film & TV, including Production Finance & Accounting, Corporate Finance & Accounting, Physical Production, and Business & Legal Affairs.

Favorite eOne moment?
I am grateful and thankful to work at a place that is committed to being of service and making a positive impact in the world. Puerto Rico is an incredible influence and force in my life. My family is originally from Puerto Rico, and to this day I have many family members who live on the beautiful island and call it home. In 2017, Hurricane Maria devastated Puerto Rico. I learned first-hand on a personal and emotional level the devastation that the island suffered as a result of the hurricane. With the support of eOne (and The Mark Gordon Company), I immediately led a successful fundraiser, the proceeds of which went to organizations that were focused on getting relief supplies to Puerto Rico as part of the early phase recovery efforts.
