Longtime Foxtel Head of Publicity Jamie Campbell is departing the company after 13 years in the role.
In a statement Foxtel noted his departure is one of a number of very difficult changes as it restructures its Foxtel, Kayo & Binge group into “a more efficient, lower-cost business,” but noting he would be missed.
“Jamie’s enthusiasm for shows and the talent associated with them will long be remembered. His achievements include breakout hits such as Gogglebox, Selling Houses Australia, and The Real Housewives Of Melbourne; signature drama series such as Wentworth, A Place To Call Home, Secret City, Upright and Mr Inbetween together with major sports campaigns and landmark company events. He leaves behind an outstanding team along with many friends at Foxtel who admire his professionalism and warmth,” a statement read.
Prior to joining Foxtel in 2006, Campbell was previously at Nine for 9 years, including 3 as Director of Publicity.
His departure follows recent redundancies at the Pay TV company including Brendan Moo as FOX Sports Head of Publicity in June, and across the wider industry, including Seven Network, during 2020.
Reporting to Chief Communications Officer Paul Edwards, Brooke Cashell will lead publicity for Foxtel entertainment with Helen Johnson, Vanessa Hollins, Victoria Richards and Dee Stewart (Melbourne), while the group includes events manager Aisha Jefcoate, Liz Hunter who manages the Foxtel magazine together with Ryley McKay and Stef Rezzara at FOX Sports. Asha Burns, publicity lead at Kayo and Binge will also be joining the Group team.
My personal thanks to Jamie for his assistance on productions over TV Tonight‘s existence, from ASTRA Awards to Wentworth and much in between.
He departs at the end of the week.
