Ex TV channel boss to assist STV with digital strategy

A FORMER chief executive at two digital TV channels has been appointed as a consultant at STV.

Jeff Henry – who once ran Hallmark Channel and also Granada Sky Broadcasting channels – has been taken on as a digital consultant by the Glasgow-based broadcaster.

For the past four years, he has worked with ITV plc, latterly as the chief executive of their Consumer Division.

Says David Archer, managing director of STV Ventures: “We have made strong progress through the development of stv.tv against our ambitious growth targets and, alongside Alistair Brown, I look forward to working with Jeff as we identify future revenue opportunities.

“Jeff is one of the most respected executives in the industry and has a proven track record of delivery in this area. I’m confident he will bring valuable experience in supporting the continued growth of STV’s digital and consumer businesses.”
