“Ron Scalera’s legacy is large and will not be forgotten,” Schweitzer said in announcing the promotions. “He built a tremendous organization and a first-class team. Garen and Lori have long been an important part of that team and are each dynamic, creative and collaborative leaders. We are so fortunate to have them guide our talented, imaginative and dedicated group of writers, producers, editors, designers and others as we move ahead.”

Before joining the network, Van de Beek spent nine years working in creative services for Eye O&Os in Houston and Los Angeles.
