Additionally, Barry LeVine will become Vice President, Marketing and Entertainment Partnerships at the company, and both will form part of the company’s newly-expanded corporate affairs group in New York and will report to Esther-Mireya Tejeda, Chief Marketing and Communications Officer.
Werner has over 25 years of industry experience, including serving as Vice President, Head of Global Marketing at Global Citizen, Executive Director for VH1 Save The Music Foundation, and Vice President of Consumer Marketing and Music Marketing for VH1 and LOGO.
