Samantha Ryan, former CEO of Monolith, has taken on the role of senior vice president, development and production at Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment.
Ryan is replacing Jason Hall, who joined WB after the company acquired Monolith in 2003. Hall had co-founded the studio and was CEO until he took over responsibility for managing WB's games development team.
He will now focus on his own production company, HDFilms, which has a first-look development deal with Warner Bros. for games and films. Hall will also take on the role of executive producer for high profile WB games and will oversee projects the company is working on with HDFilms.
In her new role, Ryan will be in charge of managing development and production staff and will take overall responsibility for all of WB's videogame titles.
"We're extremely fortunate to have Samantha take the helm at WBIE," said WB president Kevin Tsujihara.
"She has worked with us since Monolith was one of our important production studios and has continued to do so since we acquired the company."
