Dealmakers Impact Report 2011: Executives

Glasser joined a struggling TWC in 2008 and now oversees all day-to-day operations.

Company’s buzzworthy slate includes “The Artist” and “The Iron Lady.” “The challenge was to refocus on what we do best and get rid of any assets that didn’t make sense,” he says.
