The BBC Trust has appointed Alex Towers as its new director after Jon Zeff said he will be standing down after less than a year in the post.

The BBC’s governing body confirmed the appointment of Towers, a former civil servant who has been at the Trust since May 2009, initially as head of finance, economics and strategy.

Jon Zeff, who joined as BBC Trust Director in July 2014, “will be standing down to pursue other opportunities,” said the BBC.
