BT Sport and TV managing director to step down9 May 2017
BT Sport and BT TV managing director Delia Bushell has announced she will step down at the beginning of June.
Bushell calls time after three years at the UK telecoms operator, and expects to announce her future plans “in the coming weeks”.
“This was a difficult decision as I am incredibly proud of what we’ve achieved over the past few years,” said Bushell.
“But with the successful renewal of our UEFA Champions and Europa League rights and the launch of our new, improved BT TV YouView service, I can now confidently hand over the baton to the excellent team around me.”
Bushell joined BT in 2014 and has helped to drive growth in revenues and TV subscribers, overseeing the launch of BT’s European football coverage, its BT Sports app and its 4K, Ultra HD services.
“Delia leaves with our very best wishes for the future, having made a major contribution to the development of both BT TV and BT Sport,” said BT Consumer CEO John Petter.
“She leaves behind a strong team that she developed during her time here. We will announce in due course our succession plan for the BT TV and BT Sport businesses.”
