Sky Boss Stands Down

Jeremy DarrochJeremy Darroch







Jeremy Darroch is to step down as chief executive of Sky, the parent company of Sky News, after 13 years.

Mr Darroch, 58, is one of the UK's longest-serving chief executives. 

His successor will be Dana Strong, currently president of consumer services at Comcast Cable, the largest broadband and pay TV provider in the United States. 

Ms Strong has been an executive in the telecoms and media industry for more than 25 years and, earlier in her career, was chief operating officer of Virgin Media - one of Sky's competitors. 

To ensure a smooth transition, Mr Darroch will become executive chairman of Sky, remaining in the post throughout 2021. He will then act as an advisor to the company. 

Northumberland-born Mr Darroch is only the fifth chief executive that Sky has had since it floated on the stock market 26 years ago and by far its longest serving.
