Universal announced today that it has named Thierry Coup Senior Vice President of the Creative Studio at Universal Creative. The 10-year-veteran at Universal Creative most recently worked as Creative Director for The Wizarding World of Harry Potter and Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey, winner of the 2010 Theme Park Insider Award as the best new attraction of the year.
Before Potter, Coup worked on The Amazing Adventures of Spider-Man, the Islands of Adventure favorite that Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey displaced as the top-rated attraction by Theme Park Insider readers. Right now, Coup is heading the creative team for the new Transformers ride that's going into Universal Studios Singapore and Universal Studios Hollywood.
"Thierry has a tremendous reputation of delivering unparalleled attractions and experiences for our guests," Universal Creative president Mark Woodbury said in a statement. "He is an industry leader and continues to bring strength to our team with his creativity and vision."
