"I'm very excited to help chart the next phase of Fox International Channel's growth all over the world," noted Dolan."Great marketing is created by really energized, passionate people and everyone I've met so far at FIC fits that description. When I look at great brands like Fox and National Geographic, and huge success stories like the global launch of The Walking Dead, I see a fantastic foundation to build upon."
