Twentieth Century Fox Television Distribution (TCFTD) has promoted Gina Brogi to president of global distribution

The former executive VP of worldwide pay TV and SVOD, who has been with the company since 1999, will oversee distribution of series and feature films across all media and platforms including pay, basic and free TV and SVOD. She will also will be responsible for the licensing of all Twentieth Century Fox feature films to U.S. networks.

Additionally, Brogi has worked with TCFTD president Mark Kaner to restructure the division to unify licensing efforts across television and other platforms, as well as align sales across the Americas, EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa) and Asia Pacific.

“As part of our long-term planning and with the progression of our industry in mind, we have decided to restructure our organization to better capitalize on our business, Brogi said in a statement.

Three execs have been promoted to oversee television distribution strategy across each region. Evan Scheffel has been promoted to exec VP, the Americas, television distribution; Kristen Finney is now exec VP, EMEA, television distribution; and Richard Samuels has been upped to exec VP, Asia Pacific, television distribution.

Brogi is replacing president of international television Marion Edwards, who announced in July that she planned to step down at the end of the year. She was slated to fill the role but her title was not confirmed.

Brogi is based at the company’s headquarters in Los Angeles and will continue to report to Kaner.
