Condé Nast Taps Film Veteran Geneva Wasserman as SVP of Motion Pictures – Variety

Condé Nast Entertainment hired Geneva Wasserman as senior vice president of motion pictures, overseeing development of the media company’s slate of feature film properties.

Wasserman, a nearly 20-year veteran of the entertainment industry, most recently served as co-founder and executive producer of production firm Project Z Entertainment.

She takes over the role at CNE after the departure earlier this summer of Jeremy Steckler, previously EVP of film at Condé Nast Entertainment, to join Imperative Entertainment as president of film production. Wasserman will be based in L.A. and reports to Oren Katzeff, president of Condé Nast Entertainment.

“Geneva’s mix of creative brilliance and business savvy made her the ideal candidate,” Katzeff said in announcing her hire. “I know she’ll bring an innovative spirit, helping CNE capture the best that this industry has to offer, and pushing us to expand the way we think about filmmaking.”
