Showtime Elevates Pintauro, Buckley To Co-Heads Of Marketing, Creative Services

Showtime has restructured its marketing and creative services operation, promoting Frank Pintauro and Donald Buckley to executive vice president and co-heads of the department.

The moves follow the departure of Len Fogge, former executive vice president, creative, marketing, research and digital media. Fogge is expected to join Showtime's former president of entertainment, Robert Greenblatt, at NBCUniversal, where Greenblatt is now chairman of NBC Entertainment.

With the restructuring, Pintauro, as executive vice president, Red Group, will now oversee the network's in-house ad agency. He previously served as senior vice president, executive creator director, GM Red Group.

Buckley, who joined the company in April as senior vice president, digital services, has been promoted to executive vice president, program marketing and digital services, overseeing the network's marketing divisions. Both will report directly to Matt Blank, chairman and CEO, Showtime.

Blank also announced the promotion of Sharon Allen to senior vice president, program marketing and advertising and the reorganization of research, scheduling and affiliate marketing.

"These changes represent the depth and breadth of the marketing and creative services area and help further position the network for continued success in the future," said Blank. "Showtime is equipped with some of the most skilled, award-winning and creative marketing executives in the business who are ready to step into these expanded roles."
