Boutique factual production company Silent Crow Arts has named George Puckhaber as head of west coast operations, and Maura Teitelbaum as head of TV/Lit.

Puckhaber (pictured, left) will team up with SCA’s founder and president Matt Bennett to plan and execute content, enlist talent, procure personnel and make further in roads with Silent Crow’s brand in Hollywood.

Puckhaber will report to general manager Tim Mann.

Prior to being named as head of west coast operations, Puckhaber served as VP of production at Original Productions for more than a decade under Thom Beers. During that time, he collaborated extensively with Bennett and Mann in several joint productions, including Discovery Channel’s After the Catch.

Teitelbaum (pictured, right) is joining Silent Crow as head of TV/Lit, spearheading scripted content, books and overall sales. She reports to Bennett directly and coordinates efforts with development head Jenn Lee and SCA’s reps at The Gersh Agency.

“We are extremely fortunate to have Maura and George on our team,” said Bennett in a statement. “I’ve never met anyone who understands high-end production logistics like George, and Maura has always had a keen acumen, and relationship, with the entire entertainment marketplace. She’s going to be a great value add, not just for our scripted department, but for all our television and publishing clients.”
