Warner promotes Junge to senior VP of business management
Exec responsible for Midway, TT Games and OnLive deals
Warner Bros has promoted Jeff Junge to senior vice president of business management, following the acquisition of Midway and its assets.
As well as the Midway deal, Junge was also responsible for buying TT Games and the company's investment in OnLive, the cloud gaming service due to launch this autumn.
Warner has said that with the Midway portfolio, which includes hits such as Mortal Kombat and Spy Hunter, the intellectual properties "can be developed and re-released on new games and digital platforms, adapted for film or TV, leveraged for consumer products, or licensed to third parties."
"Jeff is a tremendous asset to the studio and has been a key contributor to the success of many of the company’s major initiatives," said Kevin Tsujihara, president of Warner Bros. Home Entertainment.
"He is a strategic thinker, has exceptional insight into the deal making process and is a tireless worker. Jeff’s expertise will be critical as we continue to expand our business and explore new opportunities."
Junge will continue to focus on mergers and acquisitions for the company, across all entertainment divisions, which includes Warner Home Video, Warner Bros. Digital Distribution, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, Warner Premiere, Advanced Digital Services and Anti-Piracy and Technology Operations.
