Twentieth Century Fox Television Distribution’s (TCFTD) Marion Edwards (pictured, left) is stepping down as president of international television after 24 years with the company.

Edwards will stay on with TCFTD until the end of 2016 to oversee the smooth transition of Gina Brogi (right), executive VP of worldwide pay-TV and SVOD, into the role in January.

Edwards first joined TCFTD in 1992 as senior VP before rising through the ranks to become executive VP and eventually president of international television in 2007. In this role, she was responsible for leading the international television distribution division’s revenues to “record levels” while driving the international television unit to become a “major profit contributor” for parent company 21st Century Fox.

Prior to Fox, Edwards served as VP at MGM/UA Telecommunications and VP at MCA Universal International TV.

Meanwhile, Brogi joined the distributor in 1999 as director of worldwide pay-TV distribution, before being elevated to her current position in 2011. She has played a crucial role in the development of the firm’s pay-TV and SVOD objectives.
