NBCUniversal announced today that it has appointed Donald C. "D.C." Storm II as CFO of E! and Esquire Network. Formerly the vp of financial planning and analysis at NBCU Corporate, Storm will assume the new position immediately.
Storm, who is based in Los Angeles, will report to E! President Suzanne Kolb and Esquire chief Adam Stotsky. His role will consist of “developing growth opportunities for the [E! and Esquire] businesses while managing all financial operations for both networks", according to a company statement. Before joining NBCU, Storm served as an audit manager within GE's corporate audit staff.
Storm’s appointment is somewhat unique for the company, whose C-level executives typically oversee all networks, not just one or two in particular.
Esquire Network debuted in September 2013 and is available in 75 million homes; like the magazine that inspired it, it covers a range of lifestyle topics and is generally aimed at male audiences.
