Suzanne Kolb, most recently president of marketing, news and online for E! and The Style Network, has been named president of E! Entertainment.

Reporting to Bonnie Hammer, chairman, NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment and Cable Studios, Kolb’s senior management team will include longtime E! executives Steve Dolcemaschio, COO; Lisa Berger, president, entertainment programming; and Cyndi McClellan, EVP, research & program strategy.

“As a member of E!’s leadership team, Suzanne has played a pivotal role in getting the network to the great place it is today,” said Hammer. “Her strong oversight of three areas key to E!’s success – news, online and marketing – makes her the perfect person to lead the brand through the important next phase of its evolution.”

“I am incredibly grateful to Bonnie for the opportunity to lead E! during this wonderfully exciting and unique time in the brand’s history and equally thrilled to do that in partnership with a management team I know and love,” said Kolb.

Previously Kolb oversaw the network’s non-linear destinations and recently expanded upon E!’s news entities. She’s been with E! since 2005, when she came on board as SVP, marketing for E! Networks and rose to the role of chief marketing officer for E! and Style, and GM for E! Online. Prior to joining E!, Kolb served as EVP of marketing at The WB Television Network.
