PAWTUCKET, R.I.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--It is with deep and profound
sadness that Hasbro announces the passing of beloved leader and
longtime Chairman and CEO Brian D. Goldner.

Rich Stoddart, Interim CEO, said ?Since joining the Company more
than two decades ago, Brian has been the heart and soul of Hasbro.
As a charismatic and passionate leader in both the play and
entertainment industries, Brian?s work brought joy and laughter to
children and families around the world. His visionary leadership,
kindness, and generosity made him beloved by the Hasbro community
and everyone he touched. On behalf of the Hasbro family, we
extend our deepest, heartfelt condolences to his wife, daughter,
and entire family.?

Mr. Goldner, 58, joined Hasbro in 2000 and was quickly recognized
as a visionary in the industry. He was appointed CEO in 2008 and
became Chairman of the Board in 2015. He was instrumental in
transforming the Company into a global play and entertainment
leader, architecting a strategic Brand Blueprint to create the
world?s best play and storytelling experiences. Through his
tireless work ethic and unwavering focus, he expanded the Company
beyond toys and games into television, movies, digital gaming and
beyond, to ensure Hasbro?s iconic brands reached every consumer.
The culmination of his pioneering strategy was the 2019
acquisition of independent entertainment studio eOne. Mr. Goldner
served on the Board of Directors of ViacomCBS and was the Chair of
the Compensation Committee. Mr. Goldner and his wife Barbara were
passionate advocates for improving systems of care for vulnerable
members of society.

Edward M. Philip, Lead Independent Director of Hasbro?s Board of
Directors, said ?Brian?s passing is a tremendous loss for Hasbro
and the world. Brian was universally admired and respected in the
industry, and throughout his over twenty years at Hasbro, his
inspiring leadership and exuberance left an indelible mark on
everything and everyone he touched. A mentor and friend to so
many, his passion and creativity took Hasbro to new heights. Our
love and thoughts are with his wife, daughter, and family during
this extraordinarily sad time.?
