Foxtel’s marketing director Rob Farmer departs

Subscription television provider Foxtel is seeking a replacement for marketing director Rob Farmer who left the company earlier this month.

Farmer joined the company six years ago as its head of brand and sponsorships before becoming marketing director.

Farmer joined Foxtel in 2011

Foxtel confirmed Farmer’s departure but had no further comment to make.

Farmer told Mumbrella: “After six years I’ve decided it’s the right time to explore other opportunities and do something new.”

In other losses for the company, Foxtel’s managing director of customer and retail, Mark Buckman, announced his departure last month, while earlier in September Foxtel’s executive director of channel aggregation and wholesale, Deanne Weir, also made an exit.

In July, the subscription services director of content commercialisation, Sharb Farjami, left the company to pick up a new role as News Corp’s Storyful’s New York based chief revenue officer.

Yesterday Foxtel released its latest ad campaign to launch its new Foxtel Now Box.
