The president of DC Entertainment and Warner Bros. Consumer Products, Diane Nelson, will be taking a leave of absence for an undisclosed amount of time.
Warner Bros. Entertainment CEO Kevin Tsujihara announced the move in a memo to company employees today. The move unexpectedly occurs due to her recovering from a back surgery she recently underwent and wanting to set new priorities for her family.
The leave of absence starts on April 2nd, and in her place, Thomas Gewecke, who is the chief digital officer and executive VP of strategy and business, will assist the DC executive management team while Diane Nelson is on her leave of absence.
Below read the memo from Kevin Tsujihara.
Diane Nelson, President of DC Entertainment and President of Warner Bros. Consumer Products, has decided to take time off starting Monday, April 2. After 22 years with the company, she wants to recharge, as well as have immediate and uninterrupted time with her family. This is her decision and the entire senior management team and I support this, and will help facilitate it as follows:
– The DC Executive Management team will report to Thomas Gewecke (Chief Digital Officer and EVP, Strategy and Business Development) in the interim
– Pam Lifford will report to me in the interim
Diane continues to be an important member of the Warner Bros. family and has worked on many of our most iconic properties. She has contributed greatly to the company’s successes, and we look forward to her returning to the Studio.
In the meantime, please don’t hesitate to reach out to your management team, Thomas or me if you have any questions.
Thank you for your support and continued commitment to excellence in everything we do.
We at SuperBroMovies hope Diane Nelson receives plenty of rest and everything else she may need during her leave of absence. Her loss during this time should not affect the current DC movies in production such as ‘Aquaman’ and ‘Shazam’.
