The shakeup continues among high-ranking executives at Netflix, with the latest high-profile departure being global marketing chief Stephen Bruno. Variety reports that Bruno has left to become chief marketing officer for MGM.
“His departure follows that of Netflix CMO Kelly Bennett and marks a major shakeup for the streaming giant,” Variety reports. “Bruno had been with the streamer since 2014, and is known as an innovator.”
The report adds: “He joins MGM to advise on both its film and television ambitions. He’ll work closely with MGM chief operating officer Chris Brearton, as well as MGM Worldwide TV Group chairman Mark Burnett — in addition to MGM Motion Picture Group chairman Jon Glickman and TV executive director Nancy Tellem.”
In a joint statement, Brearton and Burnett said of Bruno: “He has been at the forefront of developing disruptive marketing executions in traditional and emerging media spaces across the globe.”
