DC Entertainment President Diane Nelson leaves DC and Warner Bros.
Note from Diane Nelson…
Dear DC Talent Team,
In the last nine years, DC has become the premiere destination for top creative talent and a company that develops and fosters new talent. I am incredibly proud of this achievement and know that DC is set up for a very bright future.
As you will be hearing, I have made the extremely tough decision to not return to DC. One of my fondest memories will be working to create a talent-friendly company that ensured top writers and artists wanted to work at DC, and cultivating an environment that allowed creative talent to do their very best work.
DC is a different company with a different culture than when I joined nearly a decade ago. Rebuilding and managing DC Entertainment has been a highlight and a privilege. I am proud to leave DC stronger than when I joined it.
I will miss you all greatly, but please know that I am still in the wings cheering you on to tell the very best stories with the very best characters in the world. I am leaving you in excellent hands with the executive team that is still there to support you and the company’s vision.
You are the creative cornerstone of the company, and I could not care more or wish for more success from this wildly talented pool of creators.
Please keep in touch.
Warner Bros. Chairman/CEO Kevin Tsujihara released the following memo…
I wanted to let you know that Diane Nelson, President of DC Entertainment and President of Warner Bros. Consumer Products, who took a leave of absence at the end of March, has decided to step away from her executive duties here at the Studio. Attached is the press release that will be issued this morning.
Diane has been a friend and colleague as well as a valued member of the Warner Bros. family for more than 20 years. While we’re sad she’ll be leaving us, we completely respect and support her decision.
As previously announced, the DC Executive Management team will continue to report to Thomas Gewecke in the interim, and Pam Lifford will now report directly to me.
Please join us in wishing Diane all the best.
