Stephen van Rooyen to lead Sky’s European operations

Stephen van Rooyen to oversee broadcaster's German and Italian operations

Sky UK’s CEO Stephen van Rooyen has been promoted to oversee also the broadcaster’s operations in Germany and Italy.

As part of a management shake-up, van Rooyen will become CEO for UK and Europe, with the heads of Sky Deutschland and Sky Italia reporting to him.

According to the Daily Telegraph, Sky’s Group CEO Jeremy Darroch told staff in a memo that the restructure would bring the company’s existing operations “together in a way we have not done before”.

The current head of Sky’s continental operations, Andrea Zappia, will become CEO of ‘new markets and businesses’, as parent company Comcast looks to target new markets across Europe.
