In addition to his role overseeing Hallmark Channel’s distribution, network operations, IT and human resources, FitzPatrick, who joined Crown Media in 2000, was company’s principal liaison with industry associations and Capitol Hill on matters of public policy. He was also responsible for the launch of the net’s second 24-hour linear channel, Hallmark Movie Channel.

Prior to joining Crown, FitzPatrick served as COO of the Golf Channel.
