Blumhouse has tapped Josh Small as its chief financial officer, Variety has learned. He leaves Annapurna, the indie studio behind “Detroit” and “The Master,” where he served in the same role.

Annapurna will promote James Pong to replace the departing Small as CFO. At Annapurna, he has led business development. Pong joined Annapurna from Sony and began his career in investment banking and strategic consulting.

Small joined Annapurna in 2015 after a stint at running business operations for Topline Game Labs. He previously worked at Canon Media Partners, JP Morgan, and Universal Pictures. He will replace Roland Wieshofer at Blumhouse, where he will be tasked with helping the company continue to expand into television.

Blumhouse is best known as the producer of box office successes such as “Get Out,” “The Purge,” and “Insidious.” But it has been rapidly building up its television division, and is producing several prestige shows such as HBO’s summer hit “Sharp Objects” and a Showtime adaptation of “The Loudest Voice in the Room,” which will star Russell Crowe as Fox News founder Roger Ailes.
