ITV has appointed Carolyn McCall as its new chief executive.
Ms McCall joins the broadcaster from easyJet where she has been CEO for seven years. Prior to easyJet, she was CEO of the Guardian Media Group.
“In a very impressive field of high calibre candidates, Carolyn stood out for her track record in media, experience of an international operation, clear strategic acumen and strong record of delivering value to shareholders,” said Peter Bazalgette, chairman of ITV.
“I’m delighted we’ll be working together at ITV.”
