Paramount Pictures has appointed Jenny Tartikoff to oversee communications for the studio’s motion picture group.
She is replacing Chris Petrikin, who recently stepped down from his role as executive VP of global communication and corporate branding at Paramount Pictures. The reshuffling comes on the heels of the news that Nickelodeon president Brian Robbins is overtaking Jim Gianopulos as chairman of Paramount Pictures.
“Jenny is a seasoned and skilled communications executive with broad and deep experience in Hollywood and a strong network of industry relationships,” Robbins said. “She brings a rare combination of a strategic approach with the tactical acumen to match, and I’m looking forward to working with her to bring all of that to bear on behalf of Paramount Pictures.”
Prior to joining Paramount, Tartikoff worked at Universal Pictures as senior VP of global communications. After five years with the studio, she departed her position in 2020. She began her career as a press manager at CBS News and later held posts at New York-based communications company Rubenstein and NBC News Communications.
