Channel 4 today announces the following changes to the senior management team with immediate effect

Commenting on the appointments David Abraham, Channel 4 Chief Executive, said:

“One of the great strengths of Channel 4 is the breadth of talent we have within what is a small organisation when compared to some of our competitors. We have always been committed to developing that talent, and last year introduced a programme specifically aimed at growing our senior managers to become leaders of the future.

With this in mind, I have reviewed how we work and I am delighted to be able to announce a number of changes which promote key staff to the Executive team in newly created roles and expands the team of talented people we can bring to major creative and commercial decision making.”
