Shine America has upped two executives to the VP level.

Dave Schulz (pictured, left) has been promoted from executive director of production for Shine America to vice president of production, while Chris Campbell (right) has been named vice president of post production, having formerly been the executive in charge of post production.

Both will report to Linda Giambrone, SVP and head of production.

Schulz, overseeing day-to-day duties on Shine America’s production and development slate, has been with Shine America since 2009, and prior to that, was a producer and assistant director on docuseries and reality programs for various nets including MTV, TLC, Showtime, Style Network and Disney. He has also produced and directed feature-length docs, including Cult of Personality, a film on the first mayoral election in post-Katrina New Orleans.

Campbell, overseeing post production activities for Shine America, joined the company last September. Previously he served as executive in charge of post production for Mark Burnett Productions, on reality series including Survivor, The Apprentice and The Contender.

“Dave is a very talented executive whose extensive experience in both TV and film makes him the perfect person to oversee the day-to-day production efforts of our ever-expanding roster of series,” said Giambrone.  “Chris has overseen post-production efforts for many of the top unscripted series on TV today and he’s done a tremendous job putting together our first-class post team here at Shine America since coming aboard.”
