Peter Roth To Manage Warner Bros’ New Global Kids And Young Adults Division In The Interim Until A New Warner Bros. Chairman And CEO Is Hired

The CEO (chief executive officer) of WarnerMedia – John Stankey has chosen Peter Roth – the president and CCO (Chief Content Officer) of Warner Bros. Television Group as interim manager for Warner Bros’ new Global Kids and Young Adults Division which includes Cartoon Network, Boomerang, Adult Swim and Warner Bros. Animation as well as all licensed consumer products.

In total, three Warner Bros. executives were chosen by the CEO (chief executive officer) of WarnerMedia – John Stankey to run the studio in the interim after the resignation of Warner Bros. CEO and Chairman – Kevin Tsujihara on Monday this week (18th March), Peter Roth (as previously mentioned); Toby Emmerich, chairman of Warner Bros. Pictures Group; and Kim Williams, EVP (Executive Vice President) and CFO (Chief Financial Officer) of Warner Bros. Entertainment.

Toby Emmerich will oversee Warner Bros’ theatrical, home entertainment and video games divisions, meanwhile Kim Williams will manage Warner Bros’ other divisions such as video streaming services company – Otter Media (Crunchyroll, VRV, Fullscreen, Rooster Teeth).

John Stankey’s memo to WarnerMedia employees regarding the temporary management arrangements at Warner Bros.:

19th March 2019

To: WarnerMedia Colleagues

From: John Stankey

Subject: Warner Bros. Leadership Transition

I’ve asked three members of the existing Warner Bros. executive team to lead the organization on an interim basis until a new Chairman and CEO is named. We are doing this to ensure minimal disruption to the day-to-day operations of the studio and to provide the time we need to conduct a thorough search to find the best candidate to lead this incredible and storied business to its next chapter of growth and success. Our creative and business partners deserve this. Our company – and you – deserve no less.

The executives who have graciously come together to help me manage this business on an interim basis are: Toby Emmerich, Chairman, Warner Bros. Pictures Group; Peter Roth, President and Chief Content Officer, Warner Bros. Television Group; and Kim Williams, Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer, Warner Bros. Entertainment.

We all recognize that operating day-to-day in this manner will be a little different from the normal course of business, but the four of us agree that we need to remain focused and steer clear of any counterproductive speculation around what this temporary leadership group portends for the future. Toby, Peter and Kim will keep us focused squarely on achieving our goals and staying on track with our ambitious plans for Warner Bros. this year.

I will work closely with the three of them during this period to help make sure issues are quickly addressed and operations continue to progress in the normal course of business. Toby, Peter and Kim will be responsible for bringing forward any matters that require broader deliberation and a more integrated review – those outside of the normal decision-making process within our skillfully led teams in each department.

To help with this and minimize organization disruption Toby, Peter and Kim will coordinate groups of their peers functioning as a team. Toby will handle matters around theatrical, home entertainment and games; Peter will coordinate all television production interests and do the same with the Kids and Young Adults group; and Kim will coordinate with all of the other areas, including Otter Media.

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.

It goes without saying that our ability to tap into leaders of the caliber of Toby, Peter and Kim to continue our momentum without missing a beat is a testament to the talent we have across all of our companies. It also underscores the values, team orientation and spirit of collaboration that each of these executives exemplifies, and I thank them all for stepping up and leading by example.

Let’s continue working together to build an environment that informs and inspires audiences everywhere.
