Longtime Studio Executive Jeff Brown Leaves Warner

Longtime studio executive Jeff Brown, most recently EVP of global kids, young adults and classics for Warner Bros. Discovery, has left the studio after 26 years.

“It has truly been a great ride,” Brown told Media Play News.  “I sincerely mean that. I feel truly fortunate to have been able to participate, and I look forward to the next challenge.”

Prior to his most recent role managing global animation movie planning and revenue for TV series and movies for streaming or video, Brown was an instrumental member of the Warner Bros. Home Entertainment team under Ron Sanders and, most recently, Jim Wuthrich.

He managed all digital and physical WarnerMedia television content, including WBTV, HBO, Turner and WB Animation, for both new releases and catalog titles on a global basis. Brown further grew WB’s success with an expansion into made-for-video content, particularly with the DC Universe line. Brown also was one of Warner’s key ambassadors to San Diego Comic-Con, where the studio routinely presented panels focused on animated DC releases.

Early in his career, Brown was part of the Warner Bros. team that led the DVD/Blu-ray revolution. He was later based in London as Warner Bros.’ head of EMEA, where he helped engineer the company’s adaptation of a global franchise marketing planning process. He then moved back to the United States and assumed responsibility of WBHE’s television business unit.

Before joining WBHE in 1996, Brown worked in marketing management for General Mills and Nestle, as well as operating as GM/owner of two successful entrepreneurial ventures.
