After nearly two decades with Lucasfilm, President and COO Micheline Chau is retiring. The Wrap reports that Kathleen Kennedy will serve as interim president and by the sounds of it, a reorganization of the company will occur on at least a temporary basis.
Kathleen Kennedy, who joined Lucasfilm as co-chairman in June, will serve as interim president. The heads of the various departments, such as Industrial Light & Magic animation, LucasArts (gaming) and licensing, will report to Kennedy for the time being.
The company has no plans to name an immediate replacement for the COO position.
If I were to wager a guess, the Interim tag will be removed from Kennedy before long.
