This is a bit of a shocker – Diane Nelson, president of DC Entertainment and Warner Bros. Consumer Products, is taking a leave of absence from the company for an unknown length of time.

According to Warner Bros. Entertainment CEO Kevin Tsuhihara, Nelson is taking time off from the company but is expected to return when she is ready.

Here is the memo Tsuhihara sent to the company today:

Dear Colleagues:

Diane Nelson, President of DC Entertainment and President of Warner Bros. Consumer Products, has decided to take time off starting Monday, April 2. After 22 years with the company, she wants to recharge, as well as have immediate and uninterrupted time with her family. This is her decision and the entire senior management team and I support this, and will help facilitate it as follows:

– The DC Executive Management team will report to Thomas Gewecke (Chief Digital Officer and EVP, Strategy and Business Development) in the interim

– Pam Lifford will report to me in the interim

Diane continues to be an important member of the Warner Bros. family and has worked on many of our most iconic properties. She has contributed greatly to the company’s successes, and we look forward to her returning to the Studio.

In the meantime, please don’t hesitate to reach out to your management team, Thomas or me if you have any questions.

Thank you for your support and continued commitment to excellence in everything we do.

Best regards,

KT

Nelson was named to her position by Tsujihara in 2015.

We hope Diane Nelson is able to return to her post soon.

  1. I hope nothing is wrong. Usually when I see something like this, it later gets revealed that a family member is ill or some tragedy has happened. Hopefully it is just what the statement implies, that she simply needs a breather from what I assume is a very intense job.
