Randy Freer        

Former CEO of Hulu; Former President & COO of Fox Networks Group

Randy Freer served as the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Hulu from October 2017 to January 2020. Freer stepped down from his position as CEO after corporate restructuring intended to further integrate Hulu into Disney's direct-to-consumer and international division.

Prior to being named CEO of Hulu, Freer served as President and COO of Fox Networks Group where he oversaw revenue, distribution, operations, business development and strategy for all aspects of the Fox Television Group, FX, FOX Sports and National Geographic Partners. Additionally, he was responsible for rights acquisitions and team and league relationships on behalf of FOX Sports. Prior to that, Freer served as Co-President and COO of FOX Sports Media Group, where he focused on growing and enhancing FOX Sports’ prestigious portfolio of league, conference, and team media rights.

He oversaw the negotiations that led to long-term agreements with the National Football League, Major League Baseball, NASCAR, and the USGA, as well as with the Pac-12, Big 12, and Big East Conferences. Freer also played a significant role in Fox’s landmark acquisitions of the World Cup and the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC). He also was at the forefront of the acquisition of true[X], an engagement and on-demand marketing company that serves as a key component of FNG’s non-linear advertising products and services.

In April 2019, Freer was named one of Business Insider's 100 People Transforming Business.
