A former Titusville man is about to begin his new duties as acting CEO at Hulu, a corporation that allows Internet browsers to watch movies and TV series online.
Andy Forsell was tabbed recently to succeed Jason Kilar, who has announced he is stepping down at the end of the month.
Forsell is a 1983 graduate of Titusville High School who furthered his education at West Point and at Carnegie Mellon University. He has been with Hulu since the company was launched in 2007, and was described in Kilar’s e-mailed resignation announcement as “a critical senior executive.”
Officially, Forsell’s title has most recently been senior vice president for development.
The move comes amid many online rumors regarding the potential sale or restructuring of Hulu, which originally was a joint venture of Fox, Disney-ABC and NBC Universal. An acquisition by Comcast eliminated NBC Universal, and another firm that became involved in the corporation, Providence Equity Partners, has sold its stake in the company.
