Warner Bros. has handed out a promotion for DC Entertainment president Diane Nelson, as she's now in control of Warner Bros. Consumer Products, according to Variety. Nelson's appointment follows the departure of David Globe, president of that division at Warner Bros.
Nelson will balance these new responsibilities while continuing as president of DC Entertainment, as well as chief content officer for 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,” said Kevin Tsujihara, Warner Bros. studio chairman and CEO. “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 consumer products experiences.”
Nelson will be working with Globe for a few months as she's brought up to speed, and Variety notes that Nelson is expected to name a full-time president for the consumer products division sometime next year.
