Warner Bros. Entertainment has revealed the interim leaders for Warner Bros. Entertainment following the abrupt departure on Monday of embattled CEO Kevin Tsujihara.
According to Variety, the interim leadership team includes Warner Bros. motion pictures group chairman Toby Emmerich, as well as Peter Roth, who also serves as president of the company’s television group.
The leadership team will also include Warner Bros. Chief Financial Officer Kim Williams.
Per Variety, Emmerich will oversee theatrical, home entertainment and gaming related business, while Roth will take on oversite of television production as well as the kids and young adult content. Williams will take on remaining work in other areas, including Warner’s digital and branding company Otter Media.
In a memo to Warner Bros staff, obtained by Variety, WarnerMedia CEO John Stankey wrote: “I have committed to moving quickly as we conduct a thorough and thoughtful search for a new Chairman and CEO to lead Warner Bros. This is an organization that has many talented individuals already operating successfully as a team. My priority is to install leadership that sustains the direction and priorities of the organization – not dramatically change course.”
Tsujihara was ousted from his position at the studio amidst allegations that he used his position to secure auditions for actress Charlotte Kirk while engaging in a sexual relationship with her.
