In his new role Hotz will tasked with providing oversight of Warner Bros. digital divisions, liaising with the broader marketing team in order to devise campaigns in support of new releases. He will report directly to JP Richards, executive vice president of worldwide marketing and chief data strategist.

"Andrew has an incredible background in digital marketing, and we’ll look to him to help us refine and further our digital campaigns, realizing the full potential of our marketing organization as well as the world-class films we market."

In his previous life Hotz served as head of industry at Google, a role that saw him consult with NBC Universal on its own digital marketing work.
