In response to recent growth, Tennis Channel on Tuesday announced several appointments. Victoria Quoss has been named executive VP of programming and network strategy, Robyn Miller has joined as senior VP of marketing, Chief Financial Officer Bill Simon has added executive VP of business operations to his title and Larry Meyers has been promoted from VP of production and executive producer to senior VP of production and executive producer. All four will report to Tennis Channel Chairman Ken Solomon.

Ms. Quoss will oversee programming and network strategy across all platforms. She most recently served as VP, international and strategic planning, for Versus (formerly Outdoor Life Network).

Ms. Miller will lead all consumer branding, creative services and affiliate and ad-sales marketing. She previously spent more than 15 years at The Walt Disney Co. as a home entertainment, international and senior corporate executive.

“Each brings a unique breadth of experience that stretches beyond just programming and marketing,” Mr. Solomon said of Ms. Quoss and Ms. Miller. “It’s a tremendous vote of confidence for Tennis Channel that they’ve decided to lend their skills and expertise to the network at this time.”

Mr. Simon will focus on the development of corporate-side strategy while overseeing finance, accounting, human resources, technical operations, information technology, facilities, administration and business and legal affairs. He will retain his responsibilities as chief financial officer. Prior to joining Tennis Channel, Mr. Simon held the same position with Dick Clark Productions.

Mr. Meyers will serve as the primary force behind all Tennis Channel original programming. Since joining the network prior to its launch in 2002, he has managed live tournament coverage, series such as “Center Court With Chris Myers,” “No Strings, Open Access,” “Destination Tennis” and “Bragging Rights” and documentaries on the game of tennis and the stars of the sport. Before joining Tennis Channel, Mr. Meyers worked with Fox Sports Net as a Los Angeles-based coordinating producer.

“Bill has been on point in Tennis Channel’s growth and maturation process as a business, leading its evolution from an entrepreneurial start-up to a world-class multimedia organization,” Mr. Solomon said in a press release. “At the same time Larry has spearheaded the network’s production since its inception, and has flawlessly widened its range.”
