Business strategist to cover global homevideo dept.

Doug Regan has been plucked from Warner Bros.’ biz development and strategy ranks to serve as senior VP of worldwide strategic planning and international finance for the studio’s homevid division.

David Hettler, WHV’s exec VP of worldwide finance and info technology, said Regan’s cross-divisional experience would serve him well as he helps the vid arm more effectively navigate the increasingly complex media landscape.

Regan spent 11 years with the parent studio’s corporate business development and strategy team prior to his promotion. In that role, he primarily focused on investments and acquisitions, cross-divisional initiatives, business development, long-term planning and investor presentations, working often with homevid execs.
