Abhijay Prakash left Universal Filmed Entertainment Group in June to become president of Jason Blum’s prolific Blumhouse Productions, where he’s focusing on growing the company’s already thriving brand.

The two companies already had a mutually beneficial working relationship, so the transition was a “no-brainer,” Prakash told TheWrap for this week’s Office With a View.

“It was a very natural conversation to transition from Universal to Blumhouse,” he said. “For me, the idea of being at a place as entrepreneurial as Blumhouse was an exciting change, and the fact that it was still in the family with Universal made it a no-brainer.”
