In an official press release DC announced President Diane Nelson will add oversight of Warner Bros. Consumer Products following the departure of division president Brad Globe next spring. This isn’t a long-term position for Nelson who will appoint Globe’s successor in 2016. In addition to her duties at DC Entertainment and Warner Bros. Consumer Products, she’ll remain as president and chief content officer of Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment.
“With more and more of our consumer products business being directly driven by DC characters and storylines, a closer alignment of the divisions makes a lot of sense for us,” studio chairman and CEO Kevin Tsujihara said in a statement. “Diane’s background, which includes a great balance of business, creative and marketing, will help us bring fans exciting news ways to enjoy all of Warner Bros.’ great entertainment properties through wide-reaching, innovative consumerproducts experiences.”
