Children’s television company Fox Kids Europe is launching a new
communications structure in a bid to centralise all PR and investor
The cable and satellite TV channel has merged its existing IR and PR
departments into one unit, creating a new senior position to head the
team and spearhead its pan-European IR drive.
Fox Kids chief financial officer Martin Weigold said: ’The main
objectives of this re-organisation of the company’s PR and investor
relations activities are to facilitate further the efficient
communication of the company’s expanding aims to investors and to
promote the Fox Kids Europe brand through all forms of media.
’Our existing in-house team in those areas is a strong one, but it is
now the appropriate time to build on and consolidate those strengths for
the benefit of the company.’
The new structure will comprise a press office and an IR unit under the
overall charge of the yet-to-be-recruited director of investor relations
and communications, who will report directly to chairman and chief
executive officer Ynon Kreiz and Weigold.
Fox Kids hopes the new PR and IR heads will develop links with the
media, analysts, investors and journalists worldwide.
Louise Drabwell will lead the press office as head of press and
publicity, UK and corporate, supported by a two-strong team.
