Starz Entertainment Monday named former AMC executive Theano Apostolou as senior vice president of corporate communications and programming publicity.
Apostolou, who will be based in Los Angeles, replaces Tom Southwick as the lead communications executive for the company following Southwick's retirement last year, according to Starz officials. Apostolou will report to Bill Myers, Starz Entertainment president and chief operating officer.
Apostolou previously served as senior vice president of publicity, talent relations and promotional events for AMC, where she was the network's chief communications strategist and oversaw consumer communications for AMC original series, movie franchises and industry events.
"Theano is a well-respected and dynamic media executive with a proven track record of extraordinary accomplishment in original programming and consumer publicity," said Myers in a statement. "With Starz further accelerating its entrance into the business of quality original series, the timing of an accomplished communications executive, such as Theano, joining our senior management team could not be better."
