Industry body begins hunt for new chief to replace Deborah Williams  

The industry body is in search of a new chief to take over from Deborah Williams, who has stepped down from her role as chief executive. Williams, who served in this position for over seven years, aimed to promote diversity and inclusion within the industry. During her tenure, she led a small team that collaborated with member broadcasters, organizations, and individuals in the television and creative sectors to foster inclusivity by broadening the talent pool and supporting marginalized groups.

Williams played a key role in initiatives such as the Doubling Disability target, which seeks to increase the number of disabled individuals working behind the scenes on UK TV programs. As CDN embarks on the recruitment process for Williams’ successor, the new appointee will report to the organization’s board, which comprises representatives from member broadcasters such as BBC, ITV, Channel 4, Paramount, Sky, S4C, UKTV, Warner Bros. Discovery, as well as Bafta, Pact, ScreenSkills, and the British Sign Language Broadcasting Trust.

Paul Moore, Chair of the CDN Board, expressed gratitude to Deborah for her service and dedication to advancing diversity and inclusion in the industry, extending best wishes for her future endeavors.
