HIT Entertainment CEO Bruce Steinberg has resigned his post and Jeffery D. Dunn has been tapped to take the top spot, effective immediately.
Dunn is the former COO of Nickelodeon Networks and president of Nickelodeon Film and Enterprises at MTV Networks. During his 13-year tenure, Dunn was responsible for taking the Nick Network business around the world, creating the Noggin joint-venture with Sesame Workshop and building Nick’s licensing arm. He has also spent the past two years working on HIT parent Apax Partners’ media advisory board.
Dunn will be charged with further increasing the worldwide scale and imprint of HIT along with upping the company’s presence in the North American market. He will be based in the US, but will divide his time between HIT’s London and New York offices.
