Beyond Pix Studios today announced the appointment of Karen Sutton, an enthusiastic leader with a depth of knowledge in production and production management, as General Manager. Ms. Sutton will join Beyond Pix Studios effective February 10, 2014.

Ms. Sutton assumes leadership of Beyond Pix Studios following an exceptional 17-year career as head of Stanford Video, a division of University Communications at Stanford University, where she served as Executive Producer.

"Karen is one of the most talented executives in the Bay Area's motion arts industry and we're looking forward to her vaulted leadership in keeping Beyond Pix at the forefront," said Ray Santiago, Beyond Pix Studios Founder. "Karen is a rock star in my book."

She is an Emmy-nominated Executive Producer who was responsible for producing and directing a variety of programs including documentaries, PBS television series, live interactive webcasts, keynote speaker engagements and live events for high-level state, national, and international visitors.
