McCall

CEO

McCall joined ITV as CEO in January 2018 after improving discount airline EasyJet’s flailing reputation. She has seen her “More Than TV” strategy for the U.K.’s biggest commercial broadcaster realized with the launch, with minority partner BBC, of BritBox — branded as a “best of British” streaming service — which has 500,000 subscribers in North America and is about to kick off in the U.K. As traditional audience numbers continue to slide, summertime hits like “Love Island,” which ITV has sold as a global format, help bolster viewership, attracting 4.7 million for one mid-season episode and breaking ITV2’s ratings records for last year’s finale by 400,000. In 2017, McCall was decorated with France’s highest award, the Légion d’Honneur, for her support of women in business.
