In addition to leading the new business, Endeavor CEO Ari Emanuel will continue to lead Endeavor. The executive chairmen will be Mark Shapiro, president of Endeavor, and Vince McMahon. While current WWE CEO Nick Khan will take over as president of the professional wrestling organization, Dana White will continue to lead the UFC.
