Lopez exits Fox
January 12, 2016
Fox Networks Group is reorganising its international television business, consolidating its global channels within its regional hubs in Europe, Latin America and Asia, with CEO Hernan Lopez is exiting as a result.
Under the new structure, Jan Koeppen will become President of Fox Networks Group Europe; Carlos Martinez will become President of Fox Networks Group Latin America; and Zubin Gandevia will become President of Fox Networks Group Asia. All will report to FNG CEO and Chairman Peter Rice and FNG President and COO Randy Freer.
Koeppen, Martinez, and Gandevia will oversee Fox Network Groups’ 350+ international entertainment, sports, factual and movie channels, which reach a worldwide audience of 1.8 billion people in 45 languages and include core channel brands Fox, FX, Fox Sports, Fox Life and National Geographic.
“As our television business expands globally, the success and scale of our entertainment and sports brands in these fast-growing regions demand that they stand independently,” said Rice. “Jan, Carlos and Zubin are extremely talented executives with a sharp understanding of the opportunities for new content and programming in their regions.”
