Foxtel Media CEO, Mark Frain said that company’s series of new appointments and promotions was “indicative of the fact that it is a fascinating time for the premium video advertising arena”.

“We are thrilled to announce Erin, Bridget and Nancy’s appointments as we continue to build up our powerhouse team. Bridget adds significant strategic and operational knowledge to our team and has been instrumental in driving change across Foxtel Group for the past few years, and with Nancy, we are eager to draw on her incredible wealth of knowledge outside of the advertising industry and look to see how we can incorporate her insights into our own practices,” said Frain.

“We are also delighted to have Erin lead our marketing team as the Foxtel Group continues to evolve into Australia’s leading, streaming content provider. She is one of the most results driven individuals you will ever encounter and that has served us very well for the past three years. Her track record during this time has been impressive and we look forward to seeing what she can achieve as she moves into this pivotal leadership position.”
