Ritzer leaving Fox Intl. publicity arm

Teri Ritzer will ankle her post as veepee of international publicity at 20th Century Fox, having chosen not to renew her contract at the end of its two-year run.

“It’s been a good couple of years at Fox. But when the (career) growth stops for me, it’s time to seek other things,” Ritzer said.

She leaves the international department as it undergoes an internal restructuring that will combine the publicity and promotions departments. As part of that restructuring, it was recently announced that Scott Neeson was upped to senior veepee of marketing in international.

Ritzer went to Fox from the Hollywood Reporter, where she was the paper’s editor. The studio hired her to reorganize the international publicity department worldwide. During her tenure, she was responsible for developing the international publicity campaigns of such Fox films as “Home Alone 2,””Hot Shots! Part Deux,””Alien 3,””Rising Sun” and “Mrs. Doubtfire.”

Prior to her stint at the Hollywood Reporter, she was the director of national publicity for Universal Pictures for two years.
