Back in March is was announced that Diane Nelson would be taking a leave of absence from DC Entertainment.
At the time it was revealed that Jim Lee and Geoff Johns would be taking on extra responsibility to cover her absence.
Now after more that 22 years in post THR is reporting that Nelson is to step away from the company. In a statement Nelson said:
“Warner Bros. has been my home for over 20 years with a wide variety of incredible professional experiences. The last nine — rebuilding and managing DC Entertainment — have been a particular highlight and privilege.”
Warner Bros. Entertainment CEO Kevin Tsujihara has also released a statement to the press:
“Diane has been a friend and colleague as well as a valued member of the Warner Bros. family for more than 20 years. Throughout her tenure, her leadership and contributions have helped shape the way the studio operates today, and we’re better for having had her on our team. While we’re sad she’ll be leaving us, we completely respect and support her decision.”
As expected Lee and Johns alongside fellow executive Dan DiDio will continue to run the company operationally. In the interim, Thomas Gewecke, Warner Bros.’ Chief Digital Officer and EVP, Strategy and Business Development, will oversee the team.
