Wiedenfels has also assumed responsibility for global enterprise tech and broadcast operations, facilities, security, and studio operations, Warner Bros said on Thursday.
The company in April added about two million paid streaming subscribers in the first quarter, at a time when industry pioneer Netflix (NASDAQ:) lost subscribers for the first time in more than a decade.
