    Deputy CEO

    My name is Eve Stumbke, I’m the Deputy CEO for Golden Era Productions and I’ve been here since 1995 and I’m, as the Deputy CEO for Gold, I’m responsible for Human Resources, for the personnel, Domestic Services, the facilities, the grounds and the training of the staff.

    Coming to Golden Era Productions to me, was a definite dream, ‘cause that’s what I always wanted to do. So, and then, coming here was more than I could possibly imagine. I mean, the facilities are beautiful, the grounds are beautiful, the food is awesome. I mean we get fresh organic food every day. We have a baker who bakes us fresh bread every day, I mean you don’t see that anywhere else.

    We have a very strong purpose to help anyone, and Ron, due to who he was, we had that little extra care for him to make sure that he had whatever he needed, out of our respect for his son.

    Ron Miscavige said that if he had two pictures in his room he was given an inspection and I guess chastised for having that, and that you were not allowed to have pictures frames, personal pictures in one’s rooms. Which is completely and totally false. I myself have at least, hmmm, about 20 pictures, of my family.

    I would like to tell you about Ron Miscavige’s freedom to come and go from Golden Era Productions. Ron Miscavige owned a car so having a car gave him immense freedom to come and go as he pleased. Golden Era Productions is a huge property. We have over 500 acres so we have a south side and a north side and we have this highway that runs right through the entirety of our property. So obviously we’re open so hundreds of people come and go from Golden Era Productions. Ron himself when he would wake up in the morning would go to work and he would have to drive across the highway to go to the music studio. And then at night when he would retire he would come back across the highway. If he wanted to eat he would come back across the highway. So he could turn left, he could turn right, he could go straight across, meaning he was always free to come and go.

    Additionally he would also go to Los Angeles or go into town for both doctor’s appointments or meetings or whatever so usually because he had a car, he would drive himself. So obviously he had the allegation that he’s saying, he had no freedom, it’s completely false because he could leave whenever he wanted to.
