Nick Milligan, the man who was killed in a speedboat accident in Cornwall on Sunday afternoon, was a former ITV Central sales manager.
Mr Milligan, 51, died alongside his 8-year-old daughter. His brother described him as an "extremely loving father and husband, son and brother who doted on his family".
The BSkyB head of advertising sales worked for ITV Central in 1986 for three years.
