Propagate Content has upped Isabel San Vargas to become an equity partner in the company.
San Vargas is the company’s president of production and operations, where she oversees all aspects of this work for Propagate, including international and domestic production and post-production. She reports to Drew Buckley, group president and COO.
“Isabel is a seasoned and trusted leader who consistently delivers results. She is a hands-on operator, and has overseen a number of premium global documentary, scripted and unscripted productions for Propagate during an unyielding global pandemic,” said Propagate chairman and co-CEO Ben Silverman and co-CEO Howard T. Owens, in a joint statement.
San Vargas has worked at Propagate since 2015, and was named president of production and operations in 2018. Prior to joining Propagate, San Vargas worked at Pilgrim Studios as SVP of production, where she helped launch series such as Top Shot and oversaw The Ultimate Fighter, American Chopper and Street Outlaws. She also previously worked as a freelance producer on unscripted series including America’s Next Top Model, The Simple Life and Making the Band.
Propagate announced a pair of other personnel moves as well on Thursday (Sept. 23). Leili Mostajeran has been promoted to head of legal and business affairs, West Coast; and David Martinez is promoted to head of legal and business affairs, East Coast. The two will work across all of the company’s documentary, unscripted and scripted projects globally, including domestic and international distribution. Mostajeran served as senior attorney of business and legal affairs for both Critical Content and Gurney Productions prior to joining Propagate. Martinez, meanwhile, spent a decade at Electus and Propagate focusing on international and domestic distribution.
