HOLLYWOOD — Carsey-Werner-Mandabach has upped Rochelle Gerson to exec VP of business affairs.
Gerson heads up the business affairs department at C-W-M, handling all talent and development deals, license agreements with the networks, rights acquisitions and co-productions. Exec reports to C-W-M co-prexys and chief operating officers Dirk van de Bunt and Robert Dubelko.
“The deals Rochelle makes for us go a long way in keeping C-W-M a successful independent,” van de Bunt said. “She is a skilled negotiator, and she actively shares her talents by mentoring and training others in the company.”
