Jeff Wachtel Out as NBCUniversal International Studios President

Jeff Wachtel

Jeff Wachtel has exited NBCUniversal after almost 20 years with the company, most recently serving as president of NBCUniversal International Studios, according to Deadline.

The longtime NBCU exec is leaving amid issues about respect in the workplace and just a few days after the exit of unscripted TV chief Meredith Ahr due to the results of a toxic workplace investigation.

Per Deadline, sources say there were internal complaints about Wachtel’s management behavior, which prompted a conversation between the exec and NBCU leadership about respect in the workplace. It was decided Wachtel would leave the company and a search would begin for his replacement.

Representatives for NBCUniversal did not immediately respond to TheWrap’s request for comment on Wachtel’s exit.
