A Short History & Engagements

Wolzien LLC was formed in 2005 by Tom Wolzien after nearly 14 years as Senior Media Analyst at the Wall Street sell-side research firm of Sanford C. Bernstein & Co. and more than 15 years at NBC.

Wolzien maintains close relationships with industry leaders and those in the related fields of law, talent management, and labor relations.  He is often retained to brief company boards and members of senior management on key trends, issues and events.  His presentations range from what have been described as "post graduate level" to respectful explanations of "the basics" for those who may be experts in other disciplines.
