Backstage News On Several Top WWE Executive Departures
As we reported earlier this week here on eWn, former Corporate Controller Mark Kowal is gone from WWE after working for the company for 19 years. He was replaced by Karen Mullane. According to Dave Meltzer, “there’s some restructuring going on” within WWE.
Brian Nurse, who was brought on as Senior Vice President, General Counsel & Secretary in September of 2018, is also no longer working with the company. Nurse reported directly to Vince McMahon and was described as “a key member of WWE’s senior leadership team” in his initial hiring announcement. He oversaw the company’s legal affairs and served as a principal legal adviser to Vince, the company presidents, and the executive management team, while also acting as Corporate Secretary to the Board of Directors.
John Brody, who held the position of Executive Vice President, Global Head of Sales and Partnerships and Head of International, has also left WWE. Brody was high up in Stephanie McMahon’s department. The new executive changes are more than likely the result of changes being made by new company President and Chief Revenue Officer Nick Khan.
More WWE executive changes are expected to come in the next week or two.
