New domestic ops prexy replaces Moore
With this week’s exit of Stephen Moore as head of Fox’s international theatrical and homevideo operations, the studio is consolidating its global DVD operations under Mike Dunn, who has been president of domestic operations.In his newly created post as president of the combined unit called Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment Worldwide, Dunn will be responsible for the studio’s overall $3.5 billion in revenue and all home entertainment operations based in L.A. and the studio’s offices in 14 territories. Those territories had been overseen by Keith Feldman, executive VP of international sales and marketing, who will now report directly to Dunn. The announcement was made late Wednesday by Fox Filmed Entertainment chairmen Jim Gianopulos and Tom Rothman. Under Dunn, who was named president of the domestic vid unit in 2003, his group has averaged approximately 35% growth annually and had many successive years of record-breaking revenues. During his tenure the studio pioneered the TV DVD category with the release of the first full season of a TV series on DVD, “The X-Files,” and has continued that sales leadership with top TV DVD sellers like “The Simpsons” and “The Family Guy.”
