MEET THE PRODUCER ZACHARY LEZBERG Zachary W. Lezberg, a New York City based producer and entrepreneur, who currently owns and operates theater, film, and live event production company, The Show Producers, has long been passionate about developing unforgettable productions. His 13+ years of industry experience began in 2000, when, as a freshman at the University of Miami, Lezberg launched Quantum Entertainment. A student run film and theater production organization, Quantum Entertainment provides individuals with the coveted opportunity to gain firsthand experience in all aspects of theatrical, film and live event production. At the time of his graduation in 2004, which also saw him honored with the “Most Influential Student on Campus Award,” Lezberg had grown Quantum Entertainment from its founding group of five members to over 800 students. Today, the group is ranked as one of the most popular campus organizations, and has produced a range of popular and well reviewed musical productions, including revivals of The Rocky Horror Show, A Chorus Line, and West Side Story. Upon graduation, Lezberg began work as the Assistant Director of Business Affairs with The Araca Group, a leading Broadway production company that has produced world renowned blockbuster musical hits such as Wicked and Urinetown, as well as numerous other Tony Award winning musicals and plays. His successful four-year tenure at The Araca Group is also accompanied by an array of other industry experience, including notable turns as a Casting Associate for NBC’s hit television series, Fear Factor, a Production Coordinator for Universal Studios overseeing films and television commercials, and the producer of multiple films, including a winner at the Entertainment Incubator’s Miami Film Festival.

Lezberg has also led the influential production company The Show Producers since its founding in 2008. In addition to Broadway theatrical productions, The Show Producers coordinates and operates SMALL BUSINESS EXPO, the largest national B2B tradeshow and networking event for business owners across the country.

The First and Only Free Business Credit Report CreditSignal™ is a free subscription service from Dun & Bradstreet Credibility Corp. that enables a business to receive indicators about changes to their five main D&B® credit scores and ratings. CreditSignal also provides companies with the number of times a report on their company has been pulled, as well as provides notice of any suits, liens or judgments that might have been reported on that company. Once companies sign up for CreditSignal, they will receive an email alert each time there is a change to their Paydex®, Commercial Credit Score, Financial Stress Score, Supplier Evaluation Score, or their D&B Rating. For a detailed explanation of these scores, visit www.DandB.com/glossary. In addition to email alerts, companies will receive a monthly email summarizing whether changes have taken place on their credit file. CreditSignal is the first and only product on the market to provide companies with free access to view the change status in their D&B credit scores and ratings.

Providing Small Businesses with Knowledge About Their Business Credit In today’s economic environment, small businesses seeking to raise capital, grow and develop lucrative partnerships, or just protect their business from fraudulent activity need to pay special attention to their business credit scores and ratings. Because business credit scores are not static and may change in response to a company’s business activities, Dun & Bradstreet Credibility created CreditSignal, a free monitoring solution to indicate whether changes have taken place in a company’s credit report. This alert system serves as a simple credit health check for business owners interested in protecting their business reputation.

Empowering Small Businesses with Free Information CreditSignal empowers small businesses by keeping them aware of the direction of any changes to their business credit file that may affect their credit, finances, and overall business. For more information and details regarding our products and services, please see our Terms of Service at: http://www.dandb.com/terms-service/.
