Small world for D’Works

Studio names new COO

Jeff Small has been named chief operating officer of DreamWorks Studios. He arrives from Joe Roth’s Revolution Studios, where he held the same title.

Small will report to DreamWorks co-chair/CEO Stacey Snider, whom he knew when working at Universal Pictures before Revolution.

The chief operating officer post at DreamWorks has been vacant since the departure of Rick Sands, who left for MGM around the time Paramount bought DreamWorks.

Snider said Small’s range of experience “at all levels of a studio — which I recognized firsthand when we were both at Universal — will be an asset throughout the company.”

Small joined Revolution more than six years ago, holding a number of positions, including chief financial officer. He was tapped to serve as chief operating officer last year, overseeing business and legal affairs, finance, physical production and administration.

Snider personally thanked Roth — whose Sony-based production company is preparing to shutter — for making it possible for Small to start at DreamWorks as early as this week.

Small served in several positions at Universal, most recently as director of business development, responsible for sourcing and analyzing new business opportunities and finance packaging.
