ABC changes governance structure

ABC Board reduced from 32 to 16.

Nearly one quarter of members of the smaller board would be representing the digital media industry.

The Board consists of council members, trade association representatives and industry figures such as Tim Brooks, managing director of Guardian News and Media, and Jeremy Found, head of media of the COI. Digital media is represented by Lee Baker, director of AOP, and Nigel Gwilliam, digital consultant of IPA.

The Board will meet five times a year and oversee the running of ABC and ABCe.

The changes are said to have granted Reporting Standards Groups more autonomy.
