The 11-year studio veteran will oversee day-to-day business and legal aspects of worldwide film acquisition. Courtney Armstrong takes over as EVP Worldwide Business Affairs from Patti Connolly, who is retiring in the fall after 29 years at Warner Bros Pictures. “Courtney has been a longstanding driver of our success and this promotion is well deserved,” said Steven Spira, President of Worldwide Business Affairs at Warner Bros. “He is an exceptionally savvy and creative dealmaker, with strong business instincts and relationships, which have served Warner Bros well for more than a decade.” Armstrong joined the studio in 2003 as a Director of Business Affairs and was promoted to VP in 2004 and SVP in 2007. Before Warners, he spent three years as a legal and biz affairs attorney at Disney. Connolly will stay on through the end of the year in an advisory capacity.
