Animal Logic CEO Zareh Nalbandian has announced that the company’s Chief Operating Officer, Sharon Taylor, will assume the role of Co-CEO, joining him in leading the company as he transitions to concentrate full-time on new productions.
“I plan to step down from my position in September this year, and Sharon will then serve as the sole CEO,” said Nalbandian. “For almost 20 years, Sharon has contributed to Animal Logic’s success, and I’m confident that her leadership will ensure the studio continues to grow and innovate in the animation space for years to come.
