LOS ANGELES: Warner Brothers is losing its top communications executive.
Barbara Brogliatti, EVP and chief corporate communications officer, is leaving the entertainment company at the end of May after 18 years to pursue other interests.
No replacement has been named, but Brogliatti said she will help in the search, and will consult for the company on PR matters in the future.
"It's simply time to move on," said Brogliatti.
In addition to her work at Warner Bros., Brogliatti served as the official press strategist and spokesperson for the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers (AMPTP) during its contract negotiations with the industry guilds, and served as chairman of the Motion Picture Association of America's (MPAA) PR/educational task force focusing on intellectual property protection and anti-piracy initiatives.
