As the most industry-awarded Hispanic female in the Christian bookseller market with many gold, platinum, and New York Times best seller distinctions, Kurz has represented hundreds of artists and authors, and thousands of products.

Kurz’s widespread years of professional experience include successful roles as senior vice president of business development/consulting for Synergy Crosslinx Holding LLC, president of development at Gospo Centric and B-Rite Music, president at Lucy Diaz Kurz Consulting, vice president of marketing and corporate officer and vice president of special projects for Integrity Inc., to name a few.

“With an impressive track record in the industry such as Lucy’s, we expect great things to come,” said Steve Strang, founder and CEO of Charisma Media. “Most importantly, she brings biblical knowledge to the role, which is paramount to achieving our mission as a company.”

With successful completion of studies in two global networks providing qualification to teach in more than 1,300 international Bible schools worldwide through Rhema Bible Training Center and DOMATA School of Ministry, Kurz also brings a wealth of biblical knowledge to Charisma House, which is the publisher of the Modern English Version Bible translation.
