The movie industry is gearing up for the next big thing: a new Chief of Staff.
The New York Times reported on Tuesday that the industry’s top brass is looking for a new leader who will be able to manage the vast amount of personnel in the business and help make sure everyone is doing their jobs.
New York’s financial sector, for example, is a critical source of revenue for the film industry.
In fact, the financial sector accounts for roughly 70% of film revenue, and a key part of the film production process.
The Times cites an unnamed Hollywood executive who says that he is “proud” to have a new boss who will work to better understand the industry.
The exec said that he thinks the hiring of a new CEO will be a “massive shift” for the industry and that “it will take some time to understand the business.”
He also suggested that the next Chief of State will be someone who has a “good understanding of the business” and has a background in finance.
This is not the first time the Hollywood power structure has been in flux.
In the past year, a number of executives in the film and TV industry have left the industry to pursue other career paths.
