LONDON (Reuters) -- DreamWorks Home Entertainment announced April 1 that it has appointed Olivier Tena to head up its international division, replacing veteran home-entertainment exec Matt Brown.

Tena will oversee the sales, marketing and distribution of DreamWorks' DVD and VHS releases outside of North America, said Kelley Avery, head of Worldwide Home Entertainment for the company.

Tena will work closely with DreamWorks' international distribution partners Universal Pictures International Video, Kadakowa Entertainment in Japan and CJ Entertainment Inc. in South Korea.

He joins DreamWorks from Neutrogena Corp., the consumer skincare company owned by Johnson & Johnson, where he was VP of international business and served on its management board.

Brown has left DreamWorks' London offices and returned to the United States. He has set up the Rockport, Maine-based international entertainment media consultancy M and K Consulting to advise a range of clients such as Anchor Bay and New West Records on the home-entertainment arena.
