Kevin Tsujihara: CEO of @warnerbrosentertainment
The restoration of the DC Universe is largely thanks to Kevin Tsujihara, a third generation Japanese-American born and raised in California to a family of egg distributors. As the first Japanese-American to head a major entertainment studio, Tsujihara has expanded the company’s reach into video games and animation and prompted the dynamite recovery of DC entertainment. He first joined Warner Bros. as director of finance for special projects and oversaw the company’s interest in Six Flags. After assuming the role of CEO in 2013, Tsujihara continued to prioritize DC Entertainment as well as company-wide diversity and inclusion. Under his leadership, Warner Bros. exceeded $5 billion at the global box office for the second time in its history, following the release of hit films “Wonder Woman” and “Justice League.” Did you know, under Kevin Tsujihara’s leadership, Warner Bros. had its most profitable year in 2017?
