Rossellini previously served as exec vp of production finance and business affairs for the studio.

Newly installed 20th Century Fox Film chairman-CEO Stacey Snider has promoted Victoria Rossellini to senior exec vp worldwide business and legal affairs, as well as strategic financing.

Rossellini, who assumes her new post immediately and reports directly to Snider, will oversee all theatrical business and legal affairs, as well as business and legal affairs for digital, home entertainment and television distribution. She also will continue to manage existing strategic financing arrangements and develop new opportunities.

Rossellini most recently served as exec vp of production finance and business affairs for the studio, responsible for structuring and managing Fox’s largest financial partnerships, including the current TSG Entertainment relationship and before that, Dune Entertainment. She also has managed the studio's business relationship with James Cameron's Lightstorm Entertainment for the past 24 years, along with other key studio talent relationships.

“We feel very lucky to have such an incredibly respected and talented executive as Vicki Rossellini not only as part of the family, but as someone who we can rely upon to lead our business and legal affairs teams into the future," Snider said Thursday in a statement. "Her work with our strategic partnerships is exemplary and I am proud that we can now watch her expand her purview with this crucial position."

Rossellini joined Fox in 1992 in the theatrical legal department.
