Executive Director
Media & Entertainment Services Alliance

Guy Finley started his career in the entertainment industry as a successful performer and producer, making music with industry giants such as Phil Ramone, Elliott Scheiner, and Dave Grusin, among others. His New York City based group was signed to Larry Rosen’s N2K Encoded Music, the first record company to distribute music via digital downloads. As acting manager, Guy personally negotiated their recording contract and concurrent publishing deal with Warner/Chappell Music, the summit of his 10-year career in the music industry.

Guy joined the home entertainment industry in 2000 as President of LFA, Inc., providing home video brand and business consulting services for a worldwide clientele. His firm represented JVC (Victor Company of Japan, Ltd.) in North America licensing the loading and duplication of VHS videocassettes bearing the VHS Logo Trademark.

In 2005 he joined the CDSA, Content Delivery and Security Association (then IRMA, International Recording Media Association) where he pioneered the CDSA Daily News Portal, Plastic Packaging Standard and co-chaired the accountability sub-committee of the EPCglobal Item Level Tagging Public Policy Steering Committee. Guy now works directly with CDSA’s Board and Chairman on cross-segment efforts to allow operations executives to efficiently and effectively collaborate on securing their most important assets (their content!) throughout the entertainment supply chain.

In 2008 he founded the Media & Entertainment Services Alliance (MESA) as a coalition of service providers to the Hollywood studios, independent content holders, video game publishers, software publishers and music labels. Through MESA’s media, events, special interest groups and trade association management (2nd Screen Society, Interactive Television Alliance, Hollywood IT Society and CDSA) MESA facilitates ongoing discussions about collaboration and innovation in the entertainment industry along four key verticals: physical and digital supply chain, content security, information technology and 2nd screen technologies. With over 100 member companies and branches in the U.S. and Europe, MESA is a leading voice in the global media & entertainment industry.
