WB taps Horner for exec VP post

Exec to head theatrical communications

Warner Bros. Pictures has named Jack Horner as  exec VP of theatrical communications.

Horner most recently served as VP of corporate affairs and corporate communications for News Corp. He was reported last as being in negotiations to take the Warner post.

Horner will report to Sue Kroll, presiden of worldwide marketing. The newly created slot calls for Horner to handle corporate PR issues specifically for the film division, working closely with Kroll as well as studio president Jeff Robinov; Susan Fleishman, exec VP of worldwide corporate communications & public affairs; and the film division’s domestic and international publicity units.

“We’ve been looking for the right executive and Jack is a perfect fit who will strengthen our group in many ways,” said Kroll in a statement. “His track record speaks for itself and he brings a sharp perspective on the daily communications issues we face as a film studio.”
