DreamWorks Animation Staff Changes

Most everyone knows that Jeffrey Katzenberg has departed as the Big Kahuna of DreamWorks Animation (and taken a tidy sum with him during the exit). However, many of the execs he put in place remain in their positions, with Universal Comcast enhancements. To wit:

Marjorie Cohn will lead the integrated DreamWorks Animation and Universal Pictures television animation businesses.

Marjorie CohnShe will become head of animation TV at the merged group, reporting to NBCUniversal Filmed Entertainment Group chairman Jeff Shell.

She had joined DWA as its first head of television in 2013 after leaving Nickelodeon, where she had been president of content development at the culmination of a 26-year stint. ...

Also remaining are animated feature topkicks Bonnie Arnold and Mireille Soria, under the leadership of Universal Pictures Chairman, Donna Langley.

Ann Daly, DWA's President, is leaving the company. But she will also be receiving some lovely parting gifts in the form of tall stacks of money. We wish everybody all the best.

Deadline's take on DWA reshuffling is here.
