BT TV chief Green to leave this summer

Tuesday 24 March 2015 | 10:35 CET | News
BT TV's head of commercial and product strategy, Alex Green, will be the most senior of several executives leaving the company as it prepares a new attack on Sky Sports, the Telegraph reports. Green, who joined BT from Virgin Media in 2012, is expected to leave this summer. The move comes under a year after BT appointed Sky Italia's Delia Bushell as BT TV's managing director. The head of business development, Richard Young, and the director of content, Kate Dean, have recently left, as has James Lord, head of commercial for BT Sport. Bushell is reorganising BT TV and recruting new officers.
