Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment have shared that David Haddad has been appointed executive vice president and general manager, promoted from his previous role as executive vice president of publishing operations.
Having built experience over the years at Sierra Online, Mattel, The Walt Disney Company and Activision he “will now oversee all aspects of WBIE, including publishing, operations, sales, marketing, digital/mobile games, business development and game production,” reporting to president and chief content officer Diane Nelson and WB Worldwide Home Entertainment Distribution president Ron Sanders.

“WBIE has grown into a top games publisher by creating acclaimed hit franchises, and we are confident David is the leader to continue our path to success,” Nelson commented.
“Working with the already strong team in place, David will be overseeing the day-to-day operations of WBIE and taking strategic advantage of all opportunities to maximize our leading game franchises and strong development capabilities.”
