Nohr leaves Granada gig

Sales topper takes leave of ITV unit

LONDON — Veteran U.K. program sales topper Nadine Nohr is ankling as managing director of Granada International, ITV’s distribution arm.

Her departure is hardly a surprise given the pace of change at the broadcaster as new ITV topper Dawn Airey attempts to build the broadcaster’s production and content business.

The highly regarded Nohr, appointed chair of international development charity Every Child in January, will concentrate on other challenges.

At ITV, she successfully led four mergers, achieved significant revenue growth and investment in independent production.

Nohr, who will remain on board at ITV as a consultant for three months, said: “I have had a wonderful experience working with ITV and Granada International, and I would like to thank my past and present colleagues for the invaluable contribution they have made to the business and to me personally.”

Airey, who arrived in the newly created role of managing director of ITV Global last fall, said that Nadine has made a huge contribution to the business.

She added: “Nadine is a class act — a superb negotiator, excellent leader and valued colleague and friend.

“She has been a key architect in establishing our distribution business as an internationally renowned and respected brand. ITV owes her a huge debt of gratitude for many years of diligent service.

“She will be sorely missed by colleagues and clients worldwide, and we wish her all the best in her next big adventure, and hope that we will have the chance to work together again in the future.”

In her new role at ITV, Airey has made several key appointments and is expected to announce later this week that Fox business affairs topper Lee Bartlett is joining ITV Global as COO.
