Fox Chief Communications Officer Henderson Joining Snap

Social media platform Snap Dec. 10 announced the hiring of Julie Henderson as chief communications officer. Henderson replaces Mary Ritti, VP of communications, who left Snap last summer after five years.

Henderson, who reports to CEO Evan Spiegel, will lead communications globally as Snap continues to redefine the cellphone camera.

Henderson is currently EVP and CCO for 21st Century Fox. She will assume her position at Snap following the completion of the sale of certain 21st Century Fox assets to The Walt Disney Company.

“Julie will be an outstanding addition to our team,” Spiegel said in a statement. “She brings incredible experience, talent, and integrity, as well as the respect of the tech, media and finance communities.

Prior to her current post at Fox, Henderson was the company’s SVP of communications and corporate strategy, where she led communications and developed company-wide marketing and distribution strategies.
