Former Amazon, Discovery and Viacom executive Caleb Weinstein has resurfaced at Fox International Channels.
He will oversee distribution of FIC’s channels in Europe and Africa as regional executive VP of affiliate distribution. Based in London, Weinstein will report to Jan Koeppen, FIC President of Europe and Africa.
The FIC bouquet of channels in Europe and Africa includes Fox, Fox Sports, Fox Life and National Geographic Channel.
“Caleb’s well-honed knowledge will play a key role in ensuring this content reaches the widest audience possible through our partnerships with platforms,” said Koeppen.
Weinstein was at Discovery for five and a half year stint in which he oversaw channel distribution and, prior to that, content sales. He left the company in mid-2013 following a management reshuffle in which Tom Keavney relocated from Asia to London to take on affiliate sales.
He then joined Amazon for a brief stint as head of global partnerships for Prime Instant Video. Prior to Discovery, Weinstein was at MTV and New Line Cinema.
