WB taps Credle exec VP

Studio 'mayor' fills new spot in administration, studio operations

Long hailed as the “mayor” of Warner Bros.’ bustling 200-acre studio, Gary Credle has been tapped WB exec veep of administration and studio operations, a newly created post.

Credle has managed the studio production, post-production and operational services since becoming prexy of studio facilities nine years ago. His responsibilities will now also include human resources and real estate planning.

Formerly co-owned by Columbia Pictures, the studio was rededicated by WB in 1990.

“It was a great studio that had been allowed to go to seed,” Credle told Daily Variety. Under his watch, WB refurbished its 35 soundstages, dubbing, Foley, ADR and scoring stages. Post-production facilities were refurbished to digital standards, and a daycare center, company store and gym were added. Credle has also supervised services ranging from set construction to studio police, telecommunications and plumbing.

The studio’s administrative responsibilities have expanded significantly, Credle said, and a new prexy of studio facilities, who will report to Credle, will be appointed shortly. Credle will continue to report to WB chairman-CEO Barry M. Meyer.
