The Entertainment Industry Development Corp. has announced three senior-level promotions, which agency officials say will better service on-location production growth in the Los Angeles area.
EIDC, the Los Angeles film liaison and permit office, has upped Michael Bobenko from director of operations to senior VP of operations. Prior to EIDC’s inception in 1995, Bobenko was a senior permit coordinator with Los Angeles’ Board of Public Works Film and Video Permit Office.
“What this does for Mike Bobenko is allow him to grow in other areas,” said EIDC prexy Cody Cluff, referring to EIDC’s recent pickup of film permitting at Van Nuys Airport, as well as coordinating production with the Dept. of Water and Power. “It’s also an effort to add more service to areas (EIDC) is already providing.”
EIDC also announced the promotions of Darryl Seif to VP of governmental affairs and Donna Washington to VP of operations.
In addition, Melodee Hindle and Jodi Strong were each upped from production coordinator to senior coordinator.
