DreamWorks Taps Jasmine Madatian to Oversee PR

Jasmine Madatian has joined DreamWorks Studios as executive vice president, communications.

Madatian will be responsible for all communications strategies and media relations for the company, reporting to Jeff Small, president of DreamWorks Studios, and Holly Bario, president of production.
