We are delighted to be honoring Kevin Tsujihara for his vision and leadership as Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Warner Bros. Under Tsujihara, the storied studio has innovated in a dynamic and increasingly digital global marketplace and stands out as a Hollywood leader in film, television, videogames, home entertainment and consumer products. Working with his colleagues at Warner Bros.’ parent company WarnerMedia, he has also been a prominent advocate for diversity and inclusion. Two recent results of Tsujihara’s leadership: Crazy Rich Asians, which marked a cultural watershed for Asian and Asian-American talent; and The Meg, which is the most successful U.S.-China co-production to date.
