Guru Studio Bolsters Leadership Team


Guru Studio has bolstered its leadership team with two promotions and a new hire.

Jasmine Gard has been tapped as VP of finance, joining from Brain Power Studio. Daniel Rattner, who has been with Guru since 2017, has been upped to VP of brand strategy and growth. Jennifer Oppenheimer has been elevated to senior manager of international sales and licensing.

Gard joins from Brain Power Studio, where she served as VP of finance and operations. Prior to that, she also held senior finance roles in animated series at Netflix and was VP of production finance at 9 Story Media. In her new role at Guru, she will oversee the company’s production and corporate finance departments, financial and budgeting strategy, tax and auditing, reporting to Frank Falcone, president and executive creative director.

In his role as VP of brand strategy and growth, Rattner will spearhead Guru’s brand and content growth strategy, working across development, sales and production to foster new marketing, content and monetization opportunities for the studio.

Oppenheimer will continue to help grow Guru’s content sales across original and third-party IP.

“Jasmine brings a wealth of financial and operational planning expertise to Guru,” Falcone said. “Together with Daniel, Jennifer and the rest of our leadership team, we’re well positioned to support the strategic growth and evolution of our studio.”
