Change in directorate
ITV plc announces that Sir Robert Phillis has resigned from the Board with
effect from Tuesday 2 October 2007.
Sir Robert Phillis joined the Board of ITV plc on 7 February 2005 and has been a
member of the Nomination Committee and Chairman of the Remuneration Committee of
Sir Robert said: 'I have very much enjoyed my time as a director of ITV plc and
seeing the company establish a sound strategic plan for its future development.
However, a key part of that plan, announced on 12 September 2007, is the
development of ITV's global content business and a doubling in content revenues.
In my role as Chairman of All3Media, I have concluded that, in the light of
this new plan, it is now inappropriate for me to continue to serve on the Boards
of both companies. Accordingly, I am stepping down from the Board of ITV. I am
sure that ITV's strategy is both the right one and will benefit its shareholders
and I look forward to a continuing relationship with ITV through All3Media as a
programme supplier to the network.'
Michael Grade, Executive Chairman of ITV, said: 'We are all extremely grateful
to Bob for his tremendous contribution to the Board and committees of ITV, and
we shall miss him in our Board discussions. We wish him every success for the
future and look forward to a continuing relationship with him through All3Media
as a supplier of programmes to ITV. Baroness Prashar will succeed Bob as Chair
of the Remuneration Committee.'
