INTERNATIONAL: West promoted at Twentieth Century Fox

LOS ANGELES: Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment has named

Elizabeth West as head of global publicity and promotions.



West has been promoted from her role as London-based director of

publicity and promotions for the European region to become

vice-president of publicity and promotions for the company's

international market, based in LA.



She fills the post left vacant when Breena Camden moved to the company's

Fox Searchlight division and reports to Keith Feldman, Twentieth Century

Fox Home Entertainment senior vice-president of marketing.



West heads a team of four in LA but oversees the work of hundreds of

staff in 42 geographic regions.



Feldman said: 'For the past four years, she (West) has done an

outstanding job leading the publicity and promotions activities for the

European region.



'Throughout that time she has worked with the LA and territory PR groups

to develop innovative and ground-breaking campaigns for titles including

Tomorrow Never Dies, Independence Day, Titanic, Anastasia and Star

Wars.'



As well as overseeing global publicity and promotion, she will also be

responsible for setting the promotional strategy for the international

launch of Fox's latest releases on video and DVD formats. This also

includes MGM titles on video and DVD, for which Fox has the distribution

rights.



The company is expected to name West's successor in Europe next

month.



West joined Fox Home Entertainment in 1994 as the company's first

director of publicity and promotions for the European region. She

previously worked at London-based PR agency DSA.
