LONDON -- Rowan Conn has been named CFO of both Universal Pictures International Entertainment and Universal Pictures International in a newly combined role for Universal's overseas operation.

Conn takes the reigns Jan. 1, Universal said Monday in a statement.

Based in London, Conn will report to UPIE president Eddie Cunningham as well as UPI president David Kosse.

Conn was previously CFO of Universal Pictures International, reporting to Kosse, with oversight solely of the theatrical group.

The new role was created as a result of the impending departure of Pancho Perez after 18 months as CFO of UPIE.
