Delia Bushell has decided to step down from her role as Managing Director of BT Sport & BT TV, after a successful three years. She will announce her future plans in the coming weeks and will stay with BT until the start of June to oversee a handover of her responsibilities.
Since joining in 2014, Delia has driven strong growth in revenues and TV subscribers and overseen a step-change in the scale and quality of BT Sport and BT TV’s services, including launch of BT’s European football coverage, its award-winning BT Sport app and 4k UHD services.
Delia Bushell said “This was a difficult decision as I am incredibly proud of what we’ve achieved over the past few years. But with the successful renewal of our UEFA Champions and Europa League rights and the launch of our new, improved BT TV YouView service, I can now confidently hand over the baton to the excellent team around me. I look forward to watching BT Sport and TV continue to lead the market on innovation, creativity & commercial ingenuity.”
John Petter, CEO of BT Consumer, said “Delia leaves with our very best wishes for the future, having made a major contribution to the development of both BT TV and BT Sport. She leaves behind a strong team that she developed during her time here. We will announce in due course our succession plan for the BT TV and BT Sport businesses.”
