British TV network Channel 4 has found a replacement for its outgoing chief executive David Abraham.
Alex Mahon, the former CEO of Shine Group and current CEO of VFX software company Foundry, was unveiled Monday as Channel 4’s new head, just days after its creative officer Jay Hunt revealed she would be stepping down.
“Alex is an outstanding leader and a highly experienced CEO who has developed and grown major international businesses in both the creative and technology sectors,” said Channel 4 chair Charles Gurassa. “She brings an impressive combination of relevant experience and is brilliantly placed to help steer Channel 4 through the competitive challenges and opportunities ahead.”
Added Gurassa: “She is a great enthusiast for Channel 4 and its unique public service remit and her recent work with government will be valuable in facilitating constructive dialogue with the new administration.”
Mahon will join Channel 4 in the autumn, with an exact start still to be confirmed. Abraham is set to remain as CEO until she joins.
