Hernán López is being promoted from President and COO to President and CEO of Fox International Channels. He’ll replace David Haslingden, who will head Fox Networks Group, once Tony Vinciquerra leaves his post on Feb. 11.
Just last week, Hernán reported that Fox International Channels would more than double its operating profit in the next 4 years – from $411 million in 2010 to $1 billion in 2015. According to the Hollywood Reporter, the international division brought in 18% of News Corp.’s total cable networks operating profit of $2.27 billion for its latest fiscal year.
Hernán was previously president of Fox Latin American Channels and managing director of Fox Channels UK.
