Chrissie England is exiting her role as president of Industrial Light and Magic, with plans to hand over the job in February to Lynwen Brennan.
Brennan, currently ILM’s executive in charge of production, will take on the role of president and general manager of the visual effects facility. She has been with the company since 1999, when she joined the company as a technical area lead for the computer graphics department. She was appointed to her current post in 2006.
England will continue to work with ILM as a part-time adviser focusing on general business and production strategies.
Both women will work closely together during the transition.
ILM also announced the promotions of Gretchen Libby to executive in charge of marketing and global production, and Janet Lewin to executive in charge of production operations.
