Maria Lynn will retire as co-president of Wolfe Releasing at the end of March as co-president Jim Stephens assumes the role of sole president.

During her 22-year tenure Lynn helped steer the company as a leading distributor of LGBT cinema.

“From the beginning, Maria has been a passionate supporter of LGBT films and filmmakers,” said founder Kathy Wolfe. “She has played an integral role in the growth of our company and we will miss her incredible talent, dedication and passion.”

“Wolfe has been an amazing journey and I will forever be grateful for the experience of working with our partners, filmmakers and the Wolfe Pack,” said Lynn.

Stephens (pictured) was named co-president last year and has sat on the board since July 2013.

His credits include Reaching For The Moon, I Am Divine, Free Fall, Pit Stop, Five Dances and Tru Love.

“I enjoyed working with Maria as Co-President and have deep respect for her and the company that she helped build with Kathy,” said Stephens. “With the company celebrating its 30th Anniversary this year, I look forward to continuing the Wolfe legacy of distributing high-quality LGBT films and guiding the company into the future.”
