Harrison to leave the BBC

The Digital Production Partnership (DPP) managing director Mark Harrison is to leave his position at the BBC.

He has served as director of transformation for design and engineering since April 2015, but will be stepping down on 31 March to devote more time to the DPP.

“When the DPP became a not-for-profit-company in April 2015 we began with nine member companies,” said Harrison.

“Less than two years later, we have around 250 member companies and organisations, and we are operating on an international scale as the media industry’s business change network. It has made the DPP a very exciting, and busy, company to lead.”

Helen Stevens, chair of the DPP, and director of broadcast operations, ITV, added, “We are thrilled with the success of the DPP to date and want to build on this in a way that will keep pace with ever-accelerating industry demands.

“Having more of Mark helps us do just that – he is a great leader for the DPP and has been instrumental in our achievements so far.

“We are delighted to have more of his time and look forward to delivering in 2017.”
