Los Angeles-based prodco A. Smith & Co. has upped two longtime staffers.

Jonathan Goldberg has been upped to director of post production, and Stephanie Bortis Stoltzfus has been promoted to director of production.

Goldberg has worked in post on a number of the production company’s series, including Conspiracy Theory with Jesse Ventura, now in its third season on truTV. Prior to joining A. Smith & co., he’d worked as post-production manager on the Style series Peter Perfect, and was a post-production supervisor on truTV’s Ski Patrol.

Stoltzfus has been with the company for five years, and was, prior to her promotion, a production manager there. In her new role, she’ll be responsible for “leading A. Smith & Co. projects from start to finish,” according to the company. Production credits include Countdown to UFC on Spike and Fuel TV, and Unsung on TVOne.

“Both Jonathan and Stephanie have a rich history of creatively guiding our projects from start to finish with a focused, strategic approach,” said Frank Sinton, COO of A. Smith & Co. Productions, in a statement. “We are proud to have them as members of our all-star team and look forward to developing award-winning formats with them for years to come.”
