The former CBS Films and Lakeshore Entertainment executive will report to GRE president of worldwide production Lynn Harris and oversee all physical production elements of the company’s greenlit film projects.

He has an understanding of production resources, the evolving global production landscape and commitment to storytelling that aligns with our vision for Global Road.” 

Rubin added: “I am proud to join the incredibly well-respected team at Global Road. It will be immensely rewarding to use my experience in this industry to lead their efforts in creating a slate of films that resonates with moviegoers around the world.”
