Burbank’s Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment has promoted David Haddad to president of the division responsible for video and mobile games.
Haddad has been with the interactive division of Warner Bros. Entertainment since 2013, when he joined as senior vice president of digital publishing. In January, he was promoted to executive vice president and general manager of the interactive entertainment division.
As president, Haddad will oversee the operations of publishing, sales, marketing, business development and game production. The interactive division has had a successful year with the release of game titles “Batman: Arkham Knight,” “Mortal Kombat X” and “LEGO Jurassic World.”
Ron Sanders, president of Warner Bros. Worldwide Home Entertainment Distribution, said that Haddad’s promotion recognizes his contributions to the division’s recent hot streak.
“David has proven himself to be a leader who is equally adept at the creative and management sides of the games business,” Sanders said in a prepared statement.
Haddad will report to Sanders and Diane Nelson, who serves as chief content officer of Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, president of the studio’s consumer products group, as well as president of DC Entertainment.
