Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment has detailed a restructuring of its its sales teams.
In a move that will 'bring closer alignment to the sales and supply chain teams within the Warner Bros. Home Entertainment Group', the publisher has made two key promotions.
Kevin Kebodeaux will lead the new sales organisation as SVP for sales in the Americas while Olivier Wolff becomes SVP international for Games.
Wolff will be responsible for 'setting and leading commercial strategies that build the WBIE business outside of the Americas'. He will now oversee sales and marketing efforts and work in a consultative role with country management and WBIE staff.
Wolff will 'drive aggressive growth while ensuring a well-orchestrated approach to the business' the firm said in a statement. He will report to games boss Martin Tremblay and Jim Wuthrich, president of the international business for Warner's home video and digital division. Wolff will continue in his current role as MD of Warner Bros in Spain, overseeing home video, games and digital.
“As a veteran in the home entertainment business, Olivier brings a unique mix of skills to WBIE’s sales organization,” said Tremblay. “His international experience, packaged goods expertise, as well as his marketing background will be essential in this newly combined role.”
Meanwhile Kebodeaux will be charged with developing pan-American distribution strategies for games that are integrated with Warner Home Video.
“Kevin’s proven record as a sales executive combined with his focus, energy and management skills make him an ideal person to spearhead our sales efforts in the Americas,” said Tremblay.
“This promotion recognizes his many accomplishments and his increasing level of responsibility within the organisation.”
