William Fisher is stepping down as CEO of Chicago-based Towers Holdings (Inside 9/11, the upcoming The Civil War 3D), with founder and chief creative officer Jonathan Towers taking on the additional title of president and handling Fisher’s day-to-day responsibilities.

Fisher will become an advisor for the company’s board of directors as part of the reorganization, which comes after Chicago-based entertainment and media investment group Collegia Capital acquired Jonathan Tower’s member interests in the company.

That move sees Fisher managing Collegia Capital and overseeing the firm’s activities and investments, which include the Broadway Digital Archive and Entertainment News Service.

Towers Productions, a subdivision of Towers Holdings, is the prodco behind the upcoming four-hour miniseries The Civil War 3D for 3net, as previously reported. The indie has in the past produced programming for networks including Discovery, Lifetime, NBC, Nat Geo, TruTV and The Weather Channel.
