Freeview MD joins UNICEF

Ilse Howling, the managing director of UK digital-terrestrial service Freeview, has been appointed to the board of trustees of children’s charity UNICEF UK.

Howling becomes the first female chair of the board and her appointment gives equal male and female representation to the UNICEF UK board.

Lord Ashdown, President of UNICEF UK, welcomed Howling’s appointment and said she “brings an impressive track record as a trustee, plus a wealth of experience, knowledge and skills, especially in digital innovation and broadcast media.”

Before joining Freeview in 2005, Howling spent 12 years at the BBC – latterly as head of digital marketing and communication.
