The Entertainment Products division of Tribune Media Services, a subsidiary of Tribune Company, today announced the appointment of Dan Kazan as chief executive officer and John Kelleher as president and chief operating officer. Entertainment Products is a global leader in entertainment navigation and the provider of industry-leading databases of television, movie and celebrity information to thousands of companies. Both appointments are effective immediately.
Kazan, who has overseen the division since Tribune Media Services was restructured in June, will be responsible for its strategic vision; Kelleher assumes responsibility for day-to-day operations. Kazan will continue to serve as Tribune Company's Senior Vice President/Investments, a position he has held since 2009.
Kelleher served most recently as Vice President and General Manager/Entertainment Information, overseeing the division's core database business. He joined Tribune Media Services in 1985, and has served in roles of increasing responsibility within Entertainment Products during the course of his career.
"The Entertainment Products division is a market leader, run by talented people who are dedicated to providing their customers with the best products and services," said Kazan. "John Kelleher is the right person to lead the business into the future and enable it to continue growing and thriving. His vast experience, as well as his vision and drive, are tremendous assets and complement all of the great people that work in this business."
Kelleher takes over for Jay Fehnel, who has left the division after 19 years of service.
