Jackson departing BBCWW
January 19, 2018
BBC Worldwide content chief Helen Jackson is to leave the business as it merges with BBC Studios after 31 years in her role.
Jackson will remain with the recently rebranded BBC Studios business through 2018 working with its production partners.
BBC Studios Chief Executive Tim Davie commented: “Helen’s contribution to the BBC is hard to overstate. She has had both the vision and the relationships to attract numerous producers to BBC Worldwide over many years and is rightly held in the highest regard both inside and outside the organisation.” Jackson’s departure comes as it unveils the final tranche of appointments to the company’s new executive committee, completing the organisation’s senior line-up.
