Pam Levine departs Fox post

Exec was co-prexy domestic marketing

Pam Levine is leaving her post as co-president of domestic marketing at 20th Century Fox.

The studio has not yet named a successor but will look at candidates outside the studio.

Levine shared responsibilities with Tony Sella. The pair were upped to co-prexy status in 2002 after the departure of former marketing head Alan Cohen. Prior to joining Fox in 1995 as VP of market research, Levine was a VP for MarketCast(now a division of Variety parent company RBI).

Levine recently oversaw the campaigns for “Avatar,” “Diary of a Wimpy Kid,” “Date Night” and “Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps.” She had been working out of New Yorkfor the past few years and built a strong home base there, a factor that played into her ankling the studio.

“For some time, she and we have discussed the need to centralize all marketing functions in L.A., and the conflict that presents with the life she loves in N.Y.,” said Fox heads Tom Rothman and Jim Gianopulos in a statement.”We are disappointed but respectful of her decision to continue her career in N.Y. We will miss her acumen, insight, creativity and passion, but know that only great things lay ahead for her.”

Levine also contributed to campaigns for “Ice Age,” “Minority Report” and “Moulin Rouge.”
