A media professional in the truest sense, Maria Lynn is responsible for acquisitions, contract negotiations and finance at Wolfe Video, the largest exclusive distributor of gay and lesbian films in the world. With a Bachelor’s Degree in Communication and more than 25 years of finance experience, Lynn has rocketed Wolfe Video into the center of the independent film market, helping place LGBT films in mainstream retail, digital platforms and broadcasting to create new and profitable opportunities for queer filmmakers. “I came to Wolfe from tech, looking for a career that would make a difference in the world. That was 19 years ago and I’ve never looked back. WolfeVideo.com gives me the opportunity to give back to a community that changed my life,” Lynn says. –CM
