Following last week’s announcements of changes to WWE’s leadership team, the company announced the appointment of three new senior executives.
Joining the company will be Jamie Horowitz as Executive Vice President, Development & Digital, Samira Shah as General Counsel and Corporate Secretary, and Matt Drew as Senior Vice President, International.
Horowitz, who was most recently the EVP of Global Content for the DAZN subscription video streaming service company, “will be overseeing much of WWE’s original content, including scripted and unscripted programs for digital and social media,” according to today’s press release. “Horowitz will also be responsible for WWE Studios in Los Angeles.”
Shah, the new General Counsel and Corporate Secretary, “will oversee WWE’s legal affairs and serve as principal legal adviser for the company. Her oversight will include litigation, intellectual property, corporate governance, government relations, risk management, talent contracts and compliance.” She was most recently held the same role at Moda Operandi Inc., an online luxury fashion retailer.
Drew also comes from DAZN, where he was responsible for their international streaming rights portfolio, including relationships with the NFL, NHL, Bundesliga, and other major sports leagues. In his role at WWE, he will be “charged with growing WWE’s brand and business outside of the U.S. In addition to managing WWE’s global media partners, he will work with other company leaders to devise WWE’s international strategy for live events, digital, consumer products and new revenue opportunities.”
