FX Networks has promoted Julie Piepenkotter to the position of exec veep of research, putting her in charge of program and consumer research for the company’s current and upcoming networks.

“We are delighted to elevate Julie as we expand to three FX networks,” FX Networks prexy/g.m.

Piepenkotter joined FX as senior research veep in 2009, overseeing research at FX and Fox Movie Channel while also working with Fox National Cable Networks on special research projects.
