Kelly Campbell, the former president of Disney-operated streamer Hulu who abruptly left the company on Monday, will now be heading up another streaming service—Peacock—NBCUniversal said today.

Campbell will join the company in November as president, heading up Peacock’s streaming business and working with leadership across NBCU’s television, film, news and sports divisions on Peacock live and original programming. She will report to Matt Strauss, NBCUniversal’s chairman, direct-to-consumer and international.

“On the heels of Peacock’s success in its first year, we are thrilled to bring Kelly’s leadership and expertise to the team as we continue to accelerate Peacock’s vision and strategy,” said Strauss in a statement.

Campbell, who was named in the annual Adweek 50 list of top industry executives last year, had been with Hulu for more than four years after joining the company from Google to serve as chief marketing officer in 2017.
