ITV’s Managing Director of online and interactive, Ben McOwen-Wilson, is leaving the company along with the Managing Director of brand and commercial Rupert Howell – with former GCap CEO Fru Hazlitt arriving to fill both roles.
Hazlitt’s most recent executive post was as CEO of radio giant GCap Media until its sale to Global Radio in 2008. She will join ITV on August 2nd, in the new role of MD of commercial and online.
This role unites ITV’s airtime sales and online businesses, and stems from the broadcaster’s ongoing strategic review. ITV said the move signals the company’s intent to more fully exploit its properties and brands commercially on all platforms and media and build revenues across its online businesses.
