Fox International Channels announced Thursday the creation of a new sports division, FIC Sports.
FIC Sports will oversee the syndication of Fox Sports content worldwide. Those efforts will be led by newly appointed senior vice president Peter Hutton. Along with sales executive Zoe Duffelen, Hutton will be based in London and report to Hernan Lopez, president and CEO, FIC.
"As FIC enters the sports syndication business, we are thrilled that an executive of Peter's caliber has joined the company," said Lopez. "Combining his extensive experience in dealing with international sports television rights and the creative eye of a television producer, Peter is uniquely qualified to lead this new endeavor."
Peter Marco, vice president, business and legal affairs has responsibilities for the unit's business, legal and strategy departments, while Josh Oakley, director of acquisitions, will manage rights acquisitions and coordinate operational needs.
