Warner Bros. Discovery adds former White House press secretary Robert Gibbs as the new top executive to lead its comms division after the exit of Nathaniel Brown at the beginning of this year, sources tell The Hollywood Reporter. His start date is August 5.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Gibbs, 53, recently served as a partner at comms agency Bully Pulpit International, which lists his purview as “corporate reputation, executive communications, and crisis response.”

He was Barack Obama’s press secretary from 2009 to 2011 and had been global chief communications officer of McDonald’s from 2015-2019. Previously he served as press secretary for Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry.

“I couldn’t be happier to join Warner Bros. Discovery and to help tell the incredible stories of so many iconic brands across entertainment, news and sports,” said Gibbs. “I’m particularly excited to work with the global team to fully and clearly capture WBD’s vision and communicate the meaningful growth potential in front of us.  I am looking forward to getting started and being a part of this world-class organization.”
