“If we can inspire people who work in the arts to steer their creativity toward the Lord, it will be culture-changing.” – Bill Reeves
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo., Dec. 4, 2023 — Amid celebrating three wins at the 54th GMA Dove Awards and two consecutive seasons with titles on USA Today’s Best-selling Booklist, Christian publisher and music company David C Cook announced today that Bill Reeves will serve as the ministry’s new CEO.
For 35 years, Reeves has dedicated his career to using music, books and movies to tell the world about Jesus. His passion and talent is evidenced by his storied career: more than 20 gold and platinum records in the music industry, an agent for many bestselling books and executive produced more than two dozen films and home entertainment titles, placing many in the top 10 opening weekend at the box office.
As CEO of David C Cook and Integrity Music, Reeves will continue to innovate products, platforms and strategies to meet spiritual needs and deliver creative content in a way that draws hearts closer to God.
“Telling the world about Jesus through entertainment and media has always been my calling in life,” said Reeves. “I’m excited to join a team dedicated to connecting people with their faith through music, books and media. If we can inspire people who work in the arts to steer their creativity toward the Lord, it will be culture-changing.”
David C Cook retained Korn Ferry, an internationally known executive search firm, to conduct a thorough executive search, using rigorous qualifications established by the ministry’s board of trustees.
“Bill Reeves’ heart for our mission—combined with his vast industry knowledge—stood out among the many applicants,” said Todd Rankin, Chairman of the Board. “We believe Bill’s experience has brought him to this moment in our story, equipping him to lead David C Cook into this next season.”
