Mastermedia International, a non-profit consulting firm that helps connect Hollywood with Christian evangelical consumers, is undergoing a leadership transition with the appointment of Dan Rupple to succeed founder Larry Poland as CEO.
Poland will remain chairman of the Redlands, Calif.-based firm, which is marking its 30th anniversary this year.
Rupple previously spent 10 years as an exec at CBS Television City, supervising physical production on such shows as “The Price Is Right” and the Primetime Emmy Awards. Earlier, he was a member of the Christian comedy group Isaac Air Freight. More recently, he has produced videos for digital platforms and offered seminars to help clergy understand how to use digital media.
“Dan ends a seven-year search to find someone to take Mastermedia into the next generation,” Poland said in announcing the appointment.
