David Haddad has been promoted to the role of president of Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, the company announced today.

"David has proven himself to be a leader who is equally adept at the creative and management sides of the games business," said Ron Sanders, president of Warner Bros. Worldwide Home Entertainment Distribution.

"This promotion recognizes the many contributions he's made toward WBIE's record-breaking success this year, and we're looking to him to continue the division's momentum."

Haddad was named as executive vice president and general manager of WBIE in January. He previously served as WBIE's executive vice president of publishing operations.
