With more than 20 years of experience on the global landscape, Szew will also discuss industry trends, challenges and opportunities the television industry faces daily in today’s fast-changing world.
“We are delighted to welcome Fernando to NATPE Global to share and expand upon his plans for Fox Entertainment Global. It has been less than a year since the distribution arm launched, marking Fox’s return to the international arena, and we are looking forward to hear his take on the unit’s approach of selling a wide array of content to platforms worldwide,” said Claire Macdonald, Executive Director of NATPE Global.
Szew and his team oversee the international, multi-platform sales and distribution of intellectual property owned and produced by Fox Entertainment and its growing portfolio of in-house production studios, as well as premium content acquired from outside producers to buyers across the globe.
