Following yesterdays announcement that deputy director-general Mark Byford is to be made redundant, BBC director-general Mark Thompson has unveiled further changes to the structure of the corporationÂs executive board.
Sharon Baylay, director, BBC marketing, communications and audiences has been made redundant, while Peter Salmon, Director of BBC North, and Lucy Adams, Director of BBC People, will continue in their roles but will step down from the Executive Board and join the new BBC operating committee.
The BBC’s marketing, communications and audiences and people divisions will cease to be stand-alone divisions and will both join an expanded operations group led by chief operating officer, Caroline Thomson.Â
Helen Boaden, director of BBC News, is to join the restructured executive board to represent BBC journalism at the UK and international level and for the English regions, following the closure of the post of deputy director-general.Â
The reduction in the number of executive directors on the executive board has been approved by the BBC Trust.
