Joe Marchese

Years in Cable: 9

Education: Bentley University

This powerful duo gets things done. Marchese didn’t waste time shaking things up after assuming his current role last year. Within days he introduced a brand-lift optimization system; sequenced creative cross-platform campaign optimization and single-sponsor exclusivity within on-demand streams; and announced that FX would cease selling standard commercials across digital and on-demand environments. As head of distribution, Biard closed on the largest and most fiscally significant deals ever with Fox-affiliated stations. This year, he also absorbed Fox News and Fox Business into the FNG portfolio, leading distribution negotiations for all Fox brands and content within the newest distribution platforms.
