Today WWE announced that Nick Khan has been hired as their new President & Chief Revenue Officer, reporting directly to WWE Chairman & CEO Vince McMahon.
Khan comes to WWE as the former Co-Head of Television at Creative Artists Agency (CAA), where he’s been since 2012. Prior to working for CAA Khan was a practicing attorney and later transitioned to International Creative Management (ICM) in 2006 where he launched their Sports Media department and represented some of the biggest names in sports broadcasting.
“Nick is a seasoned media executive with a deep understanding of our business and a proven track record of generating significant value for sports and entertainment properties,” said Vince McMahon. “While representing WWE at CAA, he was instrumental in transforming our business model by securing domestic media rights increases of 3.6x over our previous agreements. Nick’s management style and personal demeanor are perfect for WWE’s entrepreneurial culture, and he will fit right in with our exceptional management team.”
Khan’s hiring will help fill the void left by longtime Co-Presidents George Barrios and Michelle Wilson who were forced out of their executive roles as well as their seats on the company’s Board of Directors in January of 2020.
“I am very much looking forward to expanding my relationship with Vince McMahon and the entire team at WWE, and becoming a full-time member of the WWE family,” said Khan. “It’s rare to have an opportunity to work at a company that is not only legendary in what it has already accomplished, but also uniquely poised to enter into an unprecedented phase of growth and expansion across all lines of business. Our collective industry experience will enable us to extract maximum value across the portfolio globally while driving long-term shareholder value.”
