Timothy Batchelor

Tim Batchelor began his career in entertainment finance with Union Bank on such projects as DreamWorks and Pixar Animation Studios.  He was soon appointed one of the firm's youngest Managing Directors (Partners) at the multinational investment bank and corporate finance consulting firm of Duff & Phelps.  In that position, he served as a practice leader in the Alternative Asset Advisory / Corporate Finance Consulting group responsible for Canada, the western and central United States, as well as Asia and Australia.  His subject matter expertise focused on entertainment finance, aviation, and complex securities for hedge funds, corporate venture capital groups, and private equity firms.

 

Drawing upon his expertise in law and economics, the firm asked him to lead several of its most notable assignments including the firm's market response to the frozen auction rate securities markets as well as the complex securities issues in the Lehman Brothers bankruptcy, still that nation's largest bankruptcy case in history.  He led the firm's work related to LightSquared, and prepared Wall Street clients for Congressional testimony.  Additionally, he served in pivotal roles in the firm's client service work related to BoeingNetflix, Relativity Media and its stakeholders, the Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP) and the Term Asset-Backed Securities Loan Facility (TALF), among many others.

Widely recognized as a leader in his field, Tim has been quoted on pertinent issues of the day in the Wall Street Journal / Barron's and the Financial Times.  He has also been asked to speak on such issues on CNBC and the Fox Business Channel.

Batchelor and Beswick first collaborated on Warp's movies, a family of film production companies that has amassed $3 Billion in box office sales.  Later, Tim would have the opportunity to show his metal again on the contentious bankruptcy and litigation of Radar Pictures.  After its wildly successful outcome, the pair's practical, no-nonsense approach to issues catapulted Convergence Partners to become a sought-after capital and strategic solutions provider in a variety of industries.

Shawn Beswick

Shawn's career began in venture capital, where he participated in over 150 successful investment transactions prior to catching the entrepreneurial bug and seeking to begin his own venture.  Following one of his passions, he became a founding principal in the EnterOcean Group, engaged in the design and manufacturing of large-scale marine projects, culminating in over fifty separate commissions for such projects, before leading a successful exit for his investors.

Shawn quickly became a resource for such innovative, entrepreneurial thinking that other successful entrepreneurs sought him out for his expertise.  He participated in the structuring and launch of the popular internet destination WebMD.com and the Switzerland-based LeMarquand among others.

At an investor group's request, he set his sights on Hollywood.  Staying true to form, he decided to carve his own path, seeking a better way to do business in Hollywood.  He became a founding principal in Warp Film affiliated companies. The Warp brand and its producers have generated in excess of $3 Billion in box office sales with such movies as Mr. & Mrs. Smith with Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie (Directed by Doug Liman), Man on Fire with Denzel Washington, Dakota Fanning, and Marc Anthony (Directed by Tony Scott), Bad Boys with Will Smith and Martin Lawrence (Directed by Michael Bay), Jumper with Hayden Christensen and Samuel L. Jackson (Directed by Doug Liman), Crimson Tide with Gene Hackman and Denzel Washington (Directed by Tony Scott), Enemy of the State with Will Smith and Jon Voight (Directed by Tony Scott), and Law Abiding Citizen with Gerard Butler and Jamie Foxx (Directed by F. Gary Gray).

It was at Warp that Shawn and Tim first collaborated and a partnership was born.  Later, in his work on the Radar Pictures turnaround, Shawn would be instrumental in solidifying Radar's work on the feature film Riddick with Vin Diesel (Directed by David Twohy).

Ever since, the pair have received mandates in industries as diverse as defence and intelligence, energy, healthcare, and technology.
