NEW YORK— GPL Technologies, a leading provider of IT
services to the media and entertainment industry, has chosen post production
industry veteran Chris Peterson to lead its office on the East Coast.  Peterson, who will serve as Account
Manager/Northeast from GPL’s New York office, brings extensive experience as a
producer, post production executive and marketing specialist. He most recently

Factory NY. In his new role, Peterson will direct GPL’ s east coast Managed
Services, Infrastructure Solutions, Hardware-as-a-Service (VFXnow) and IT
Staffing (Breed Staffing) divisions.

GPL Technologies
launched its East Coast office last year to assist companies involved in film,
television and advertising production with their IT and technology needs. “We
have received an enthusiastic response from visual effects houses, post
facilities, advertising agencies and other creative companies seeking experienced
IT support in order to continue to manage their workflows and grow,” said GPL
Technologies President Brian Terrell. “Chris is a great addition to our team. He
brings diverse experience and wide respect throughout the production and post
production community. We expect to benefit greatly from his knowledge and
leadership as we build our footprint in the East.”

Current clients of GPL Technologies, New York, include The
Molecule, Brainstorm, Stephen David Entertainment, Brand New School, Eyeball
and Baltimore advertising agency TB&C.
At Post Factory NY, Peterson
provided sales and production support to a prestigious clientele that included
studios, independent producers, television
networks, filmmakers and advertising agencies. Previous to that,
he served as an Executive
Producer for Bang Music.
As a producer and
post producer, Peterson has created content for E! Networks, Howard Stern On Demand and other
broadcasters. He currently serves on the Board of Post New York Alliance. He is
a member of the Advertising Club of New York and received its 2014 President’s
Award. Additionally, he is a member of the Association of Independent
Commercial Producers (AICP), and a graduate of George Washington University.
In discussing his
move to GPL, Peterson said that New York State tax incentives have led to a
dramatic increase in production and post production activity, and that, in
turn, has created a need for specialized IT support. “The tax incentives have
brought new shops to New York and made existing companies busier,” Peterson
said. “Those companies need gear, they need advice, they need support and they
need IT staff, all things that GPL provides. New York needs to show the
entertainment industry that it has the pipeline to handle the higher volume of
work. We can be a valuable partner to creative companies and help ensure that
they have the resources to get the job done.”
