Two More HBO Executives Depart

Two more HBO executives are leaving the company as AT&T continues to consolidate the divisions that made up the former Time Warner. Rebecca Rockafellar, senior vice president, HBO Digital Products, and Gilman Wong, senior vice president of digital products and chief architect at HBO are leaving, according to two people familiar with the situation.

The departures of Ms. Rockafellar and Mr. Wong, both of whom were based in Seattle, follow that of Diane Tryneski, the former executive vice president of technology and chief digital officer, who left recently.

The exits show how WarnerMedia is losing seasoned talent as it seeks to consolidate its different businesses. It’s notable that two of these departed executives are women given that John Stankey, head of WarnerMedia, recently said at an employee town hall that he is looking  to do a better job of attracting and retaining female executives than his predecessors did.

To that end, Bob Greenblatt, the new head of Warner Media Entertainment, has named a few women executives to his team, according to one of the people. Jessica Holscott, the former CFO of HBO, is leading finance for Warner Media Entertainment. Eve Konstan, the former general counsel for HBO, now leads legal for the division. Mr. Greenblatt also named Kathy Mandato, a former HR executive at NBCU, to head up HR for the group.
