Kip Meek is a new Canvas chair

Kip Meek, once chief policy executive at Ofcom, is said to be poised to become the chairman of Project Canvas. A long time media consultant Meek will have the tricky task of keeping the six partners – BBC, Channel 4, ITV, BT, Talk Talk and Arqiva – all pointing in the same direction.

Politically he is well-connected with the coalition government having been appointed to the 12-strong panel set up by the Conservatives in April last year to conduct a review of the creative industries.

Meek’s first job will be in helping to recruit a CEO for the project.
