CBS names new CFO, chief creative officer as executive shuffle continues

CBS Corp. on Oct. 18 promoted Christina Spade to executive vice president and CFO and David Nevins to chief creative officer of the company, effective immediately.

Spade, who joined Showtime Networks Inc. more than 22 years ago, had been executive vice president and chief financial officer and strategy for Showtime since 2013. Nevins was also promoted to chairman of Showtime Network and will remain as the business's CEO. He will be based in Los Angeles.

The appointments come a little more than a month after Les Moonves resigned as chairman and CEO of CBS amid sexual harassment allegations.

Nevins will oversee programming, marketing and research across CBS Television Studios, the CBS Television Network's Entertainment division, Showtime Networks and, in conjunction with CBS Interactive, programming for CBS All Access.

He will also oversee CBS' interest in The CW (US), a joint venture between CBS and Warner Bros. Entertainment Inc. Executives Julie McNamara of CBS All Access, David Stapf of CBS Television Studios, Kelly Kahl of CBS Entertainment, George Schweitzer of marketing and Radha Subramanyam from research will maintain their leadership roles in the aforementioned areas.

CBS recently appointed Dana McClintock chief communications officer and Laurie Rosenfield chief people officer of the company.
