Horowitz

Vice Chairman, Business Affairs & Operations

Horowitz scored a coup in April 2020 when he secured a five-year exclusive deal with Lego to develop, produce and distribute theatrical releases based on its IP, snatching the franchise from Warner Bros. The year also saw Universal Theater Group successfully open its fifth commercial musical under his leadership, the West End production of “The Prince of Egypt,” but it was forced to go on hiatus six weeks into its run due to the coronavirus. Horowitz is a key adviser to Filmed Entertainment Group chairman Donna Langley, with whom he’s worked for nearly 20 years, helping to craft the studio’s portfolio strategy across Universal Pictures, DreamWorks Animation and Focus Features, and will continue to work under her in his new role as vice chairman of NBCUniversal business affairs and operations. He also oversees production partnerships with Illumination, Blumhouse, Working Title and Amblin Partners.
