DW's new board chairman

Mellody Hobson has been announced as the new chairman of the board of DreamWorks Animation. She replaces Roger Enrico, CEO of Pepsico, who resigned for unspecified reasons.

This news follows by a day the news that DreamWorks Animation CEO Jeffrey Katzenberg and COO Ann Daly have had their contracts extended.

Hobson is the president of Ariel Investments, LLC, a Chicago investment firm managing over $3 billion in assets.

And she has been George Lucas's girlfriend since 2006.
