ATVOD names new director

UK video-on-demand regulator ATVOD has named Paul Whiteing, CEO of PhonepayPlus, to its board as an independent member and director.

Whiteing, who will take up his post in January, will replace Sara Nathan, who is standing down after three years.

“We are delighted that Paul has agreed to join the Board. He offers a wealth of experience in regulation and consumer protection and will help to ensure that ATVOD understands the perspectives of the consumer as we work to ensure that users of on demand services enjoy the regulatory protection provided for in law,” said ATVOD chair Ruth Evans. “We would also like to express our thanks to the outgoing director – Sara Nathan – for her outstanding contribution to the development of ATVOD, especially in its crucial first years as the co-regulator for UK video-on-demand services.”
