Williams said, "I'm extremely excited to be taking on this new position working for James across the breadth of News Corp activities throughout Europe and Asia, ranging from operations in Eastern Europe to the already very successful UK newspaper business. At the same time, I am very proud of the team at Sky Italia and look forward to remaining involved as a member of the board."
