Longtime CBS Corporation employees Chris Ender and Dana McClintock have been promoted to executive vice presidents of communications, CBS Corporations's chief communications officer Gil Schwartz announced Thursday.
McClintock, who joined the company in 1993 to help launch "Late Show With David Letterman" and directed the network's communication for the Olympic winter games in Nagano, Japan in 1998, was named senior vice president of communications in 2002.
Ender (pictured), who came aboard CBS in 1996, has been instrumental in building the company's West Coast communications operation, overseeing publicity launches for "Two and a Half Men," "Everybody Loves Raymond," "The Big Bang Theory," "NCIS," the "CSI" franchise and others. Most recently he served as senior vice president, communications, a position he'd held since 1998.
Both McClintock and Ender will continue to work with Schwartz in charting CBS Corporation's media-relations and communications strategy, with McClintock working from New York and Ender working from Los Angeles.
“Chris and Dana are two of the brightest, most forward-thinking executives in the business,” Schwartz said. “Each is an incredibly gifted strategist and manager who has grown over the years to become the best that this business -- any business, in fact -- has to offer.
"Together, working closely with the senior management of the Company across its many divisions, they have successfully helped to transform the perception of CBS from that of a simple broadcasting company into a leading content creator on the world stage," Schwartz added. "I am very proud to promote them both to these well-deserved positions, and look forward to working with them for many years to come.”
