Jeff Taylor, who has been serving as executive vice president and chief litigation counsel at Fox Corp since 2019, has been promoted to general counsel. He will report to Chief Legal and Policy Officer Viet Dinh. Before Taylor joined Fox, he was deputy general counsel for General Motors and general counsel of Raytheon Integrated Defense Systems.
