Warner Bros. Names Temporary Leadership Team Amid Kevin Tsujihara's Exit

Following CEO and Chairman Kevin Tsujihara's resignation on Monday, Warner Bros. has selected a temporary leadership team to take over the company.

The team will consist of Toby Emmerich, the Chairman of Warner Bros. Motion Picture Group, Peter Roth, Warner Bros. Television Group President and CCO, and Kim Williams, Warner Bros. Entertainment CFO.

WarnerMedia CEO John Stankey will be meeting later today with the new staff, where the team will be formally unveiled.

This team will run the company on a temporary basis until a new CEO and chairman to replace Tsujihara is found. Some speculate that Stacey Snider, the 20th Century Fox Film Chairman, will be selected. Snider's position as chairman will be terminated once the Disney acquisition of Fox is completed, leaving her an ideal candidate.

Tsujihara resigned from Warner Bros. Entertainment following news of a sexual harassment scandal. The company has yet to officially announce his permanent replacement.

Under Tsujihara, several high-profile films have been produced and distributed, including Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, The LEGO Batman Movie and Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. The shake-up will change much about Warner Bros.'s internal structure, though Tsujihara's replacement should have a minimal impact on the day-to-day activities of Warner Bros. Furthermore, the transition should not impede any films currently in production.
