Fox Entertainment has appointed Amy Carney as chief operating officer just over four months after the company broke off from Twenty-First Century Fox when the latter was acquired by Disney.
Carney (pictured) will be based in Los Angeles and reports into Fox CEO Charlie Collier. She will be responsible for overseeing research, strategy and operations for the media company.
She was most recently president of advertiser sales, strategy and research at Sony Pictures Television, joining Sony on the ad side in 2003 and adding strategy and research to her remit in 2012. She previously held positions at Univision and Ticketmaster.
“I’m pleased to welcome Amy to Fox Entertainment. She’s a smart, sophisticated leader whose passion and professionalism I’ve admired for years,” said Collier in a statement. “No matter the role, department or platform, Amy has helped build businesses, broadly elevated thinking and process, and grown meaningful internal and external partnerships. Her arrival marks yet another important step in the building of this new company. We are immediately better for her presence.”
