The three others labored at NBC.

Exec veep Jerry Petry will be responsible for worldwide business operations and sales strategy. Andy Warren, VP and chief financial officer of CNBC, will be in charge of worldwide finance. VP Joe Schlosser will oversee worldwide communications.

NBC U will settle on the exact titles of these seven execs shortly. Not in this group is Jim Benson, who was senior VP of worldwide communications for Universal TV Distribution, responsible for domestic and international syndication, pay-per-view and video-on-demand.
