It's been an eventful past few months for entertainment executive Kevin Mayer. After leaving a more than two-decade stint at Walt Disney Co. to become TikTok's CEO in June -- and then resigning that post two months later, amid the app's ongoing battle with President Donald Trump -- he has now landed a senior adviser role at Warner Music Group majority owner Access Industries.
In his new role, Mayer will focus on strategic media assets at Access -- an industrial group that also has investments in sports streaming service DAZN and music streamer Deezer -- and identify new opportunities across media, entertainment and telecommunications sectors, according to a press release. That will include everything from wireless communications to streaming media and entertainment licensing ventures, likely involving Warner Music.
"Kevin has an unrivaled depth of experience building successful global media and entertainment enterprises," Access Industries founder Len Blavatnik said in a statement. "He will bring invaluable knowledge and insight across a range of Access's investment areas."
