Beginning his career as a Marketing Director in 1996, the EVP had a hand in the distribution and sales of some of the studio’s biggest franchises, including the DCU, ‘Harry Potter,’ ‘Game of Thrones,’ and ‘The Matrix.’
Jeff Brown, Warner Bros. veteran and EVP of Warner Bros. Discovery Global Kids, Young Adults, and Classics stepped down from his role after 26 years with the studio. In his EVP position, Brown managed animation and revenue planning for both TV series and movies, with the added responsibilities of greenlighting and distributing original features made for streaming. Some of the many franchises under his purview were the DCU, Scooby-Doo, Deep Blue Sea and Cinderella Story.
Brown began his career with Warner Bros. in 1996 as a Marketing Director, headquartering in London between 2001 and 2004 as a lead executive behind the successes of the Harry Potter, DC, and The Matrix franchises.
While Brown was responsible for physical media earlier in his career, he was a key player in the push towards the transition to digital and streaming for home entertainment. During his time as EVP and General Manager, he managed distribution of television content, including Warner Bros Television, Warner Bros. Animation, HBO, and Turner, as well as third parties such as BBC and Peanuts Worldwide.
Brown said, “It has truly been an honor and incredible ride for all these 26 years at Warner Bros. I feel truly blessed to have worked with so many great people, creating and distributing such wonderful content. I loved every minute of it.”
