Channel 4 CMCO to step down & focus on own business

The marketing and communications officer of Channel 4 will be stepping down at the start of 2019.

Dan Brooke is leaving the broadcaster to focus on his own business that will focus on “helping companies be mission and purpose driven”.

Brooke has been at Channel 4 since 2010 and previous to that worked for seven years at Film4.

During his eight years at Channel 4, the marketing and communications officer was the board champion for diversity and inclusion. The channel won Best Diverse Company at the 2016 National Diversity Awards.

“I’m proud of the things my incredibly talented marketing and communications teams have achieved and that the most groundbreaking of this work has achieved such powerful results and consistent global recognition,” he said.

“I’m also proud to have been the board champion for diversity and inclusion, leading the drive that saw Channel 4 voted Britain’s Best Diverse Company.”

“With the ‘4 All The UK’ plan now successfully launched, it’s a good time to leave on a high and use these successes as a springboard for my burgeoning ambition to help other mission and purpose-driven companies grow.”

The group’s chief executive, Alex Mahon, said: “Dan has made a huge and far-reaching contribution to the life and success of Channel 4 over many years. I’d like to thank Dan personally for the support and advice he has offered me in my first year and, on behalf of the whole organisation, wish him the very best with his future plans.”

Channel 4 has not yet shared plans following Brooke’s departure.
