AEW President and CEO Tony Khan has praised a recent backstage acquisition as bringing in great experience to the company. 

Tony Khan is no stranger to hiring folks with WWE backgrounds, however it was a recent behind the scenes acquisition that has been making waves.
Appearing on the ‘In the Kliq‘ podcast, Tony Khan praised Mike Mansury for his work on recent production elements for the company.
Khan said:

“Mike comes in with a ton of experience in TV production,” 
“Now a lot of that set and those elements had already been designed, but as far as integrating the new set, Mike’s been essential.”
“Mike’s going to help us run a first-class production every week. Mike has so much experience shooting the best wrestlers, and frankly I think Mike has probably more insight and experience in different facets of the production than anybody else you could’ve hoped to bring in.”

Michael Mansury, who served as WWE’s Vice President of Global Television Production, was hired by AEW last month for the role of Senior Vice President & Co-Executive Producer.
Mansuy was with WWE from March 2009 until May 2020.

He was hired by the company as a Production Assistant before he rose through the ranks, being elevated to his Vice President role in March 2016.
