Paramount Pictures has promoted veteran executive LeeAnne Stables to the post of president of worldwide marketing partnerships and licensing.

She has handled deals for the “Transformers, “Star Trek” and “Mission: Impossible” franchises and other films with deals with General Motors, McDonalds, BMW, Nokia, Audi, Oreos, American Airlines, Pizza Hut and Dodge. The new title includes managing key corporate brand relationships in theatrical and home media windows, film integrations and studio licensing.
