Keith Cocozza, executive VP marketing & communications at WarnerMedia, is out as Jason Kilar, who became CEO on May 1, reorganizes the AT&T unit to simplify operations in order to better service its customers.
Christy Haubegger, chief enterprise inclusion officer, will oversee the global marketing and communications team, including branding and corporate social responsibility.
Kilar thanked Cocozza for “not only helping me navigate these last few months at the company—and with the media—but more importantly for his 19 years at the company through its evolution. I have never met a kinder, more collaborative executive in my career.”
WarnerMedia is laying off about 800 staffers at its Warner Bros. and HBO operations.
Prior to WarnerMedia, Kilar was founding CEO of Hulu and senior VP at Amazon.
In announcing the reorganization, Kilar said: “Because of the gift that is the Internet, we have what I believe is one of the greatest opportunities in the history of media, which is to deliver our beloved stories and experiences directly to hundreds of millions of consumers across the globe.
