Exec leaves to pursue new career path, studio chief says

Adrienne Gary, senior VP of worldwide human resources at Warner Bros., has departed after 22 years.

In an announcement to senior execs, studio chief Barry Meyer said Gary has decided to leave WB to pursue a new career path. “Adrienne has given her considerable talent and great energy to the benefit of Warner Bros. and our employees,” Meyer said.

When Gary joined the company in 1978, after serving as a management consultant for Ernst & Ernst, there were fewer than 1,000 employees. Today, Warner Bros. boasts more than 10,000 regular full-time employees globally.

Gary oversaw the integration of all human resources efforts, including organizational changes stemming from the Lorimar merger in 1989 and the Time Warner buy of Turner in 1996.

Gary, who plans to focus on specialty consulting, serves on several advisory boards of Internet orgs and management consulting firms. She also plans to participate in several philanthropic organizations. Recently, she was asked to serve on the Otis Arts Institute Benefit Committee.
