Legendary Taps Thomas Lesinski for Digital Division

Lesinski will serve as president, digital content and distribution under Bruce Rosenblum

Legendary Digital Media has tapped former Paramount exec Thomas Lesinski as its new president, digital content and distribution.

Lesinski will report to Bruce Rosenblum, president of Legendary Television and Digital Media, and will oversee “digital content development, production and distribution, and contribute to designing, evaluating and implementing Legendary’s digital strategy,” according to a press release announcing the appointment on Monday.

Rosenblum joined Legendary from Warner Bros. in June. Lesinski’s hiring is Rosenblum’s latest move to beef up his team under Legendary’s new deal at Universal.

Lesinski founded Paramount’s digital entertainment unit in 2006 and recently served as the division’s president.
