Los Angeles YouTube network Machinima announced today Anthony Vinciquerra, former chairman and chief executive of Fox Networks Group, has joined its board of directors.

Vinciquerra, who left Fox Networks Group in 2011 after almost 10 years with the company, is a senior advisor for Texas Pacific Group, a private equity firm. He also sits on the board of DirecTV.

“His experiences growing the Fox broadcast and cable network groups over the past decade will help inform our content and ad sales strategy going forward,” Machinima Chief Executive Allen DeBevoise said in a statement.

TPG is not an investor in Machinima, which earlier this month raised $18 million in a funding round led by Burbank’s Warner Bros. Entertainment.
