DC's Diane Nelson to Oversee Warner Bros. Consumer Products

DC Entertainment President Diane Nelson will add oversight of Warner Bros. Consumer Products following the departure of division president Brad Globe next spring.

According to the official press release, this isn't a long-term position for Nelson -- Globe will work with Nelson during a transition period, and Nelson will appoint Globe's successor in 2016. In addition to her duties at DC Entertainment and Warner Bros. Consumer Products, she'll remain as president and chief content officer of Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment.

Globe, who was named in 2005 as head of the studio's lucrative consumer products arm, will work with Nelson in the coming months.

"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," studio chairman and CEO Kevin Tsujihara said in a statement. "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."

Before being appointed in 2009 as president of the studio's new DC Entertainment division, Nelson was head of Warner Premiere and executive vice president of Global Brand Management for Warner Bros. Entertainment. She has also shepherded the "Harry Potter" film franchise since 2000.
