Movie Gallery names Stubbs retail president


DOTHAN, Ala. -- Movie Gallery Inc., operator of a movie and video-game rental chain, on Friday named Jeffery Stubbs president of retail operations, consolidating oversight of the company's three divisions.

Stubbs, who was chief of operations for the Movie Gallery division, will now oversee retail operations for that unit and the Hollywood Video and Game Crazy units.

Timothy Warner, chief of operations at the Hollywood chain, resigned.

Movie Gallery, the No. 2 rental chain behind Blockbuster Inc., has faced stiff competition from online rental sites like Netflix Inc. The company said the move Friday "provides considerable opportunities to enhance and streamline the operations' organization."
