BBC Studios



Davie was already atop the BBC Worldwide channels and distribution business when BBC Studios was formed to combine all of the company’s commercial and production activity. Before joining the British pubcaster in 2005, Davie was at Pepsi, where he rose up the ranks in marketing and franchising. Now he makes attention-getting shows such as “Doctor Who,” “Blue Planet” and “Top Gear” and sells them around the world, turning in revenues of £1.4 billion ($1.7 billion) in its first full year of operation. BBC Studios is a founding minority partner in BritBox, the “best of British” streamer that operates in North America and soon enough its home turf in the U.K. Davie was bestowed the title of CBE in 2018 for his services in international trade.
