New CEO Airey ankles Iostar

World Brief

High-flying U.K. exec Dawn Airey has quit her job — just eight days after starting the gig. Airey, formerly with BSkyB and Channel 5, took up the job of CEO at upstart combo Iostar, billed as a U.S.-style content provider-distributor operating across TV movies, series, factual shows and feature films.

Last week it emerged that she was having “legal difficulties” at the company and appears to have walked following concerns regarding the upstart’s financial backing.

Neither Airey nor Iostar were available for comment.
