Paul Wachter, investment adviser to the entertainment elite, has been elected to the Time Warner board of directors, the company announced Thursday.

“Paul brings a unique combination of abilities to the table, including his perspective as an investment adviser, background in investment banking and law and experience in the entertainment industry,” said Time Warner CEO Jeff Bewkes.
