Brian Sullivan Named Fox Networks Group President and COO
Fox Networks Group has found a new president and COO in Brian Sullivan, a longtime Sky executive who moved over to head FNG's digital operations in 2015.
Peter Rice, president of parent 21st Century Fox and chairman and CEO of FNG, announced the appointment Thursday. It comes just over a month after previous COO Randy Freer moved to Hulu to fill Mike Hopkins' CEO position.
“Brian is an incredibly talented executive and has been instrumental in leading the direct to consumer efforts across our brands,” said Rice. “Brian’s track record at Sky and his proven expertise in building digital video consumer products has made him an invaluable part of our senior leadership team, and I look forward to working with him to continue to focus and operationalize our revenue, distribution and D2C efforts.”
