Pixar co-founder John Lasseter has landed on his feet, months after being ousted over a series of misconduct allegations.
Lasseter, who left the animation giant in June, was named head of the animation department at Skydance Media, a production company affiliated with Paramount Pictures, on Wednesday.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Skydance founder David Ellison told employees in a memo that the company had hired outside counsel to investigate the sexual harassment claims.
“We did not enter into this decision lightly,” Ellison said in a statement. “John has acknowledged and apologized for his mistakes, and, during the past year away from the workplace, has endeavored to address and reform them.”
Neither Ellison nor Lasseter specified how he had learned from his behavior.
