The BBC has appointed a new HR
director to replace Gareth Jones, who announced his departure in March.
Stephen Dando, former global HR
director of Guinness, will join the corporation in early June.
“I am delighted to be joining the
BBC. It is a unique organisation, with a wealth of creative talent, and I look
forward to working with new colleagues on the many challenges and opportunities
that lie ahead,” commented Dando.
The appointment comes in the wake of
wide-scale restructuring within its HR division. In January this year, the BBC
announced its decision to cut 99 HR jobs.
