Castonzo, who most recently served as VP of development, has been elevated to the role of senior VP of development. He will continue leading the firm’s creative expansion while also evaluating emerging talent and partnership opportunities. Castonzo has overseen the development of all Go Go Luckey series, specials and pilots since joining the company in 2012.
