D Cinema promotion at Universal

Michael Joe is now chief strategy officer at Universal Pictures, according to this Hollywood Reporter story.

Borys Kit writes:

    Joe, who previously held the post of exec vp, business development and strategic planning, will now serve as the company's chief strategy officer. While continuing to oversee business development, he will direct the company's windows strategy and digital initiatives, including wireless, interactive games and d-cinema. He will oversee the company's entry into new markets and new technologies and will also represent Universal on anti-piracy, public policy and MPAA matters.

    Joe, who will also report jointly to [chairman Marc] Shmuger and [co-chair David] Linde, will continue to manage Universal's advanced technology group, which he has overseen since January 2005.

Here's a Q&A with Michael Joe from earlier this year.
