Bert Fink

Chief Creative Officer, Professional Licensing

Since joining MTI Europe in 2016, Bert Fink has relished the opportunity to see bold and brilliant productions of great Broadway and West End musicals in over a dozen languages, and work with talented directors and producers from across a vibrant European market. Previously, Fink served with The Rodgers & Hammerstein Organization for over a quarter century, most recently in London, where he was SVP/Europe and, before that, in R&H's home office in New York City. There, he oversaw numerous international campaigns; wrote essays and liner notes for CD, DVD/BD, and songbooks; and co-produced bonus material for Home Entertainment releases with such studios as the Walt Disney Co., 20th Century Fox, Universal, and Warner Bros. (Highlights of his work on The Sound of Music included a Medal of Distinction from the State of Salzburg, and hosting Dame Julie Andrews in a special documentary on the film’s 50th Anniversary DVD/BD edition).

Fink began his career as a Broadway publicist, working with such legendary theatre luminaries as Cameron Mackintosh, Stephen Sondheim, Andrew Lloyd Webber, Bob Fosse, and Jerome Robbins, and on the original Broadway companies of Cats, Les Misérables, The Phantom of the Opera, Sunday in the Park with George, and others. Fink served on the Advisory Committee of the American Theater Wing for five years, and was a Tony Awards Nominator. He taught musical theatre history at New York University, and has guest-lectured at museums, libraries and universities across the USA, the UK and in Europe.

As an American transplanted to London, he is determined to convince his British colleagues of the merits of Major League Baseball (and his beloved Boston Red Sox), and asks that they not take offense at one of his favourite musicals, 1776.
