BBC Worldwide has appointed Andrew Bott as its new chief financial officer.
Bott has been in the CFO role on an interim basis since the departure of Philip Vincent late last year for SAB Miller. Bott was previously the financial chief at BBC Worldwide North America from 2007 and also took on financial responsibility for BBC Worldwide Global Advertising Sales in 2013.
Bott commented: “BBC Worldwide has set out a clear and ambitious strategy, based around premium content, new global BBC brands and digital transformation, and I’m looking forward to supporting and enabling this through the work of the Finance function.”
Prior to BBC Worldwide Bott worked for Pearson.
