As Barry Meyer promised last week, Warner Bros continues to roll out structural changes, these coming on the heels of yesterday’s DC Comics-focused announcements. Among today’s changes:
NEW YORK, September 22, 2010 – Jeff Bewkes, Chairman and CEO, Time Warner Inc., announced leadership changes at Warner Bros. to position the company for succession. As part of the plan, Barry Meyer, Chairman and CEO, and Alan Horn, President and COO, will remain in their current roles for the next six months. Beginning April 1, 2011, Meyer will extend his contract, and Horn will enter into a consultancy agreement, both through December 2013.
In addition, Bewkes also announced the formation of an Office of the President comprised of Jeff Robinov, President, Warner Bros. Pictures Group; Bruce Rosenblum, President, Warner Bros. Television Group; and Kevin Tsujihara, President, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment Group, which will report to Meyer beginning on April 1, 2011. In this capacity, each executive will retain his current responsibilities while becoming more engaged in the operations of the overall company, at a time of convergence of content and distribution platforms throughout the entertainment industry.
With more details available from Nikki Finke.
