ITV chairman Sir Peter Bazalgette will take on the role of executive chairman, while Ian Griffiths will become the combined chief operating officer and group finance director.

Bazalgette said: “Adam has been talking to me and the board for some time now about his future plans.

“He has made a fantastic contribution to ITV and the board is deeply indebted to him for his strong leadership and personal dedication in very successfully turning around the business and building a more global and diversified organisation with real scale in key creative markets around the world.”
