What are the best industry databases for C-level and Director level contact information, specifically in Entertainment, Sports, Finance, and Fashion?


When I temped briefly at a PR firm, she had an amazing database that seemed to have everyone's contact information, but I can't remember the name of it. Hivemind, help me figure out what databases are actually useful and up to date.

There's one called Leardeship Library that university libraries, and especially business school libraries, subscribe to.

I would suggest contacting a librarian in the library of an MBA-granting business school and asking them your question. Business school libraries tend to have subscriptions to a number of databases that are not accessible to general university library patrons. Just be aware that these types of databases tend to be paid subscription-only.

Jigsaw certainly will have a good number of contacts in those, and just about every other field.

The database that they used where you temped was probably Cision.

Seconding Jigsaw. The user contribution and updating factor is the pro and the con, here.
