“Jeff has been an essential component in the success of some of our big event films at Universal,” said co-chairman Donna Langley. “He brings skill and enthusiasm to everything he does, and we look forward to having his continued contributions to our creative process.”

Kirschenbaum came to U in 2001 as director of development and was promoted to VP of production in 2004. He has been senior VP of production since 2007.
