U ups Hannegan to PR VP

Exec o'saw int'l campaigns for 'Mummy,' 'Pie' sequels

Barbara Hannegan has been upped to vice president of international publicity for Universal Pictures. Promotion is part of a shuffle of U’s international publicity division.

Hannegan will run a department comprised of Larry Angrisani, an international publicist at U since 1997 who recently was promoted to senior publicist; Mark Markline, who is joining Universal as senior publicist after handling field publicity and promotions at USA Films; and Elena O’Gorman, who comes aboard as a junior publicist after working for two years as an account exec at B-W-R Public Relations.

Hannegan, an exec director of international publicity since 1999, has been with the department for more than 12 years. She has overseen international campaigns for pics including “The Mummy Returns,” “Jurassic Park III” and “American Pie 2.”

Restructuring will serve to buttress a department whose ranks have thinned in the last two years. A handful of execs have exited in that time, including international marketing and distribution prexy Nadia Bronson and VP of international publicity Thomas Castaneda.

Senior VP of international marketing and distribution Randy Greenberg said, “I’m very pleased to finally have my international publicity team in place and particularly delighted to have someone as experienced, knowledgeable and well liked as Barbara — who for so long has really been the backbone of the department — at the helm.”
