Jim Wuthrich has been promoted to president of international home video and digital distribution at Warner Bros.

In his newly created post Wuthrich will report to Warner Home Video president Ron Sanders and Warner Bros Digital Distribution president Thomas Gewecke and work closely with the international territories to grow the home entertainment division's footprint overseas.

Marc Gareton, currently serving as executive vice president of international at Warner Bros Digital Distribution, Yves Caillaud, who serves as Warner Home Video's senior vice president of international, and senior vice president of international licensee Chris Dyde will report to Wuthrich in the consolidated structure with Caillaud overseeing EMEA, Gareton overseeing Asia and Pacific and Dyde coordinating international licensees.

Sanders hailed Wuthrich as an 'integral part' of the company for more ten years while Gewecke said: 'Jim will continue to play a key role in shaping our international day-and-date VOD strategy, while helping manage our physical and digital growth abroad.'

Prior to his most recent role as senior vice president of digital distribution, Wuthrich served as senior vice president of electronic sell-through and interactive marketing at Warner Bros Home Entertainment Group. He joined Warner Home Video in 1998 as director of marketing.
