Williams Replacing Digby As Part Of ITV Review!

By on 10 January, 2011



Outgoing Channel 5 sales director Kelly Williams is reportedly joining ITV as head of TV, with group commercial director Gary Digby one of a number of executives leaving the broadcaster as part of the ongoing review – Campaign reports!

Simon Daglish, currently vice president commercial director at Fox Interactive Media UK, with responsibility for MySpace, and formerly sales director at radio group GCap Media, is understood to be joining ITV as head of digital and clients.

The changes are understood to be part of an ongoing review by former GCap Media chief executive Fru Hazlitt, who joined ITV as managing director of commercial and online in August.

In addition to the Digby news, other commercial executives understood to be leaving the business include trading director Simon Lent, group account director Jeremy Lawrence, creative solutions director Simon Orpin and Manchester-based David Croft, who is director of regional sales.

Since ITV have yet to comment on these developments, it is unclear whether any of the executives leaving ITV have a job to go to.
