Literary Management Company Fourth Floor Promotes First New Manager

Jeff Silver's company has upped Chris Goble as the company continues its focus on management.

Jeff Silver's Fourth Floor Production has named its first new manager.

Chris Goble, who started at the company as Silver's first assistant, has been promoted to the company's first new manager.

Before heading to Silver's management company, Goble worked in postproduction on such films as Avatar, The Dark Knight and Inception, before seguing to development and management.

Silver started his career running New York-based theater production company Blue Lion Productions. He moved to L.A. in 2006 and was an assistant at CAA before working as a development and production executive at Winker Films. He launched Fourth Floor in 2010 and, with Goble's promotion, will continue to focus on building the company with a focus on management over producing.

Fourth Floor currently represents writers and directors in film, TV, video games and digital. Clients include Mitch Akselrad (a producer on AMC's Turn); hot writer Ryan Tavlin, who recently set up scripts Love Is and Counting Backwards at ABC; and Matt Charman, who has The Machine at Disney.

Goble, who started his new post earlier this month, has already built a roster of clients that includes video game writer Steve Jaros and director Christina Yee (Miss Todd), among others.

"It's thrilling to watch how our clients have flourished and be part of their lives and careers as they create wonderful and lasting films and television shows," Silver said. "It's been equally thrilling to see Chris become a fantastic manager and an ambassador for our company. We're looking forward to continuing to grow, while keeping our core principles and culture intact."
