Fox International Channels (FIC) has unveiled a new organisational structure of the company’s executive team in Europe and Africa. The move consolidates and strengthens FIC’s leadership in these key, high-growth regions, which now span 25 countries and employ more than 900 staff.
Under the leadership of Jesús Perezagua, President of Fox International Channels Europe & Africa, the new structure groups the sprawling business into four structured entities, and appoints four, newly upped Executive Vice Presidents with oversight as follows:
* Diego Londono, a 16-year FIC vet, who also serves as Chief Operating Officer for Europe & Africa assumes the role of President of Western and Northern Europe, with oversight of the UK, Italy, Germany and the Nordic region.
* Carlos Ortega, who for the past 4 years served as General Manager of Central Europe, becomes EVP of Central and Eastern Europe, charged with the management of central Europeancountries as well as Russia, the Balkan countries, Baltic Republics and Eurasia.
* Adam Theiler, who has served as General Manager of several European FIC markets over the course of his 11-year career at FIC, becomes EVP of Southern Europe & Africa, covering Iberia, Turkey, Greece and Africa.
* Adrian Herzkovich, who over the past 15 years has been General Manager of FIC Argentina and most recently of FIC Netherlands, takes on the role of EVP Benelux and France.
“FIC has grown incredibly fast and has become a global leader in entertainment. We hold an enviable position in Europe and Africa, but at the same time recognize that in order to grow our business, we need to adjust to meet the demands of an increasingly complex business and organisation”, says Jesús Perezagua, President of FOX International Channels Europe & Africa. “Diego, Carlos, Adam and Adrian have each tirelessly contributed to FIC’s exponential growth. Their extensive track record, business acumen and dedication make them the perfect set of senior managers to take us to the next level.”
The European Executive Team also includes existing heads, Georgina Twiss, SVP Affiliate Distribution (Distribution Direction); Deborah Armstrong, EVP Advertising Sales (Commercial Direction); and Sergio Falcón, SVP Digital Media.
