Robert De Niro’s Tribeca Prods. named Kate Fishman director of development and Craig Gering director of production, part of the indie’s effort to promote from within.
“Because we’re such a small company, I have been tremendously relying on them ,” Jane Rosenthal, Tribeca prexy, said.
“So this is their just reward.”
Fishman, who started at Tribeca in its intern program, has been Rosenthal’s executive assistant most recently, handling submissions, tracking and reviewing material and serving as a liaison for projects in development. She will now be responsible for acquiring new material, setting up projects and advancing those already in development.
“I hope she will help the company grow,” Rosenthal said. “She has the taste and the stamina to do it.”
Gering has been Rosenthal’s assistant and handled administrative matters. His new job includes expanded administrative and production duties.
“He has not really been given the opportunity to grow,” Rosenthal said. “So this is his chance.”
