Fox has been working for the WWE since 1995, spending the first six years of her career with the company in television and sponsorship sales. In 2001 she was promoted to Vice President of TV Programming and the two years later was once again promoted to Senior Vice President, Global TV Business Strategy. With the addition of the WWE Network, Fox Lee was given the role of Senior Vice President, Network Programming, in 2014 and this past January she climbed up to Executive Vice President, Content.
