Susie Buckridge has been appointed the new CEO of Youview.

She takes over from Richard Halton, who announced his intention to step down from the role in July.

Buckridge is an internal promotion; she has previously been responsible for partnerships and commercial affairs, rising to director of product and more recently, working with Halton and the Board to agree a new shareholder agreement.

She will take on her new role in January.

Simon Duffy, chairman of YouView said: “We are delighted to announce Susie Buckridge as YouView’s new CEO. We have selected a strong leader who knows the team, the shareholders and the market well and who is stepping up into this significant new role at an exciting moment in YouView’s history.”

Susie Buckridge said: “It is a great privilege to become CEO of such a successful British technology company. Richard Halton’s strong leadership means I will be leading a company at the forefront of the media industry. Our continued mission will be to work with our seven shareholders, harnessing their combined strength in the UK market to bring new TV products and services to consumers.”
