With WWE having started to set up a new Talent Brand Management
department, the company is looking to make two big hires to drive this

Corporate, the search is on for a Director and Vice President to oversee
this new department. The Director would report to the Vice President, whilst
the Vice President will report directly to the WWE's Chief Brand Officer. And yes, Chief
Brand Officer does indeed mean Stephanie McMahon.
Both positions will be based at WWE’s Stamford, Connecticut headquarters,
and the main duty of both jobs will be to develop the individual
brands of WWE’s in-ring stars.
The company’s official description of its Talent Brand
Management department has it pegged as “a division of WWE that has 360-degree
oversight of Superstars’ individual talent brands and is focussed on
positioning and growing these individual brands inside and outside WWE platforms”.
Successful applicants for the Director and Vice President
roles will also work alongside Executive Directors – presumably meaning Paul
Heyman and Eric Bischoff – and at least ten years of experience in business
leadership is required. As always seems to be the case with WWE, individuals
must be prepared to be available 24/7 and be content to spend 25% of their time
So, the crux of it is that should you wish to be considered
as the new Director or Vice President of WWE’s Talent Brand Management
division, you have to be willing to give up your evenings, your weekends, your
public holidays, spend a large chunk of your time stuck on an airplane, and
then get bitched out by Stephanie McMahon at the end of it.
