Jacqui Gold Grunfeld has been bumped up to senior VP of business affairs at ABC Studios.

She reports to ABC Studios exec VP Howard Davine, who made the announcement Monday.

Grunfeld now will oversee the ABC Studios business affairs department’s day-to-day operations. She’ll also work with Davine to set the studio’s business strategy and come up with new deal templates.
