BT ‘set to appoint Adam Crozier as new chairman’

Former ITV chief executive is reported to have beaten three others to the role

BT is reportedly preparing to announce former ITV chief executive Adam Crozier as its new chairman, replacing Jan de Plessis who resigned in March.

Crozier, who is currently chairman of fashion chain Asos, beat three other people to the role, according to the Sunday Times.

He served as CEO of ITV from 2010 to 2017, taking over from Michael Grade. Crozier was also CEO of the Football Association between 2000-2002.

BT is currently considering a potential sale or external investment into its sports broadcasting arm. In July, chief executive Philip Jansen has said the company remains “open-minded” on the future of BT Sport, but hopes to reach a deal by next quarter.
