WWE Hires New Executive In Wake Of Stephanie McMahon’s Exit – Today, WWE has announced another new executive will be joining the company.
As revealed via a press release on the promotion’s official website, WWE has hired Catherine Newman as their new Executive Vice President and Head of Marketing. The move makes Newman part of WWE’s senior leadership team, according to the release, and she will oversee marketing, brand, community relations, and other areas within WWE.
“Newman brings more than two decades of executive experience to WWE including her most recent role as Chief Marketing Officer of Manchester United Media,” the press release stated. “She has also held senior positions at The Times of London and Financial Times, leading global marketing initiatives, developing strategic partnerships, and boosting subscription growth across various products.”
The move seems to confirm that WWE doesn’t expect Stephanie McMahon to return any time soon, though it is unclear how much, if any, of McMahon’s responsibilities will now fall to Newman. It had previously been reported that WWE President Nick Khan would be assuming McMahon’s duties, but that it would only be for the short term before someone took over full time. As of yet, the company hasn’t hired a new, or interim, Chief Brand Officer.
