David Decker has been promoted to executive vice president of cable and SVOD sales for Warner Bros. Domestic TV syndication, after Tom Cerio has stepped down, reports our good friend Cynthia Littleton in Variety.
The story continues, noting that Decker, who’s been with Warner Bros. for 10 years, will report to “Ken Werner, prexy of Warner Bros. Domestic TV Distribution. Jeffrey Schlesinger, prexy of worldwide TV distribution, praised Cerio as ‘an innovative deal-maker, a savvy strategist and above all an ethical and respected executive.’ Cerio will remain a sales consultant to the studio.” He ran cable sales for the past five years.
