Dreamworks taps publicity head

Chip Sullivan to report directly to CEO Snider

DreamWorks has upped Chip Sullivan to head of publicity, overseeing the company’s corporate communications.

He reports directly to DreamWorks CEO and co-chair Stacey Snider. He’ll also work with DreamWorks Animation on upcoming projects.

Snider lauded Sullivan as someone who “has long earned the admiration of everyone who has ever worked with him as well as earning great respect from the media and those outside the company who know how smart and imaginative he is.”

Sullivan joined DreamWorks in 1995 as head of special projects and worked on such films as “Saving Private Ryan,” “American Beauty,” “Gladiator” and “Shrek.”

After DWA went public and Paramount Pictures acquired DreamWorks, Sullivan played a role at both companies. He served as head of animation production marketing at DWA and also oversaw special marketing projects at Par, contributing to the campaigns for “Over the Hedge,” “Shrek the Third,” “Flags of Our Fathers,” “Dreamgirls” and “Transformers.”

Before DreamWorks, Sullivan was director of special projects at Walt Disney Studios.
