Morgan Spurlock‘s Warrior Poets has upped Ethan Goldman (pictured) from exec VP of development to partner and head of development.

Since boarding the company in 2012, Goldman has worked alongside partners Spurlock, Jeremy Chilnick and Matthew Galkin in an effort to grow and develop the New York-based prodco’s offerings in television, film and digital.

At Warrior Poets, Goldman has served as executive producer on such projects as A&E’s American Takedown, History’s Dark Horse Nation, AOL’s Connected and documentaries Morgan Spurlock Presents Freedom! The Movie for CMT Films and Censored Voices, which premiered at last year’s Sundance Film Festival. Goldman is also working on Smartish, a forthcoming multi-channel network backed by Maker Studios.

Elsewhere, Matt Cafritz has been named manager of development of the prodco while Eric Enright has been elevated to creative executive.

In his new role, Cafritz will be charged with expanding and further developing Warrior Poets’ unscripted slate. He previously held a variety of roles as a production and development assistant at Half Yard Productions, Leftfield Pictures and most recently Original Media. His credits include History’s Alone, American Heroes Channel’s America’s Most Badass and the forthcoming Pacific Warriors for Discovery.

Enright, meanwhile, will continue in his role as producer while overseeing the company’s digital development slate, including the launch of Smartish for which he is co-producing four series. He has held various titles at Warrior Poets since 2012, including associate producer and assistant to the head of production.

Correction: An earlier version of this story incorrectly stated Matt Cafritz’s role as MD. He is manger of development.
