My name is Reggie Thomas and my background is in sales and business development. I am a formerly with The Crisis magazine/NAACP, where I was developing and launching Crisis/NAACP films. I recently decided to take early retirement from the Association, so as a result, I will not be continuing with that development. I am planning to move forward with work to support my cousin, film producer Preston Holmes, and colleague, Monica Cooper, in furthering development of their projects. My background includes Director of Sales at talk station WLIB in New York, and Vice President of International Sales at Metromedia International, where I was based in Moscow, Russia. I am a Russian speaker and my hope is to someday bridge motion picture business opportunities with U.S. filmmakers and those in other countries, including Russia.
