Paul Moore to join ITV as Group Corporate Affairs and Communications Director

ITV plc announced that Paul Moore, easyJet Communications and Public Affairs Director, is to join the company as Group Corporate Affairs and Communications Director.  The recruitment process for his successor at easyJet has already started and Moore will join ITV once that process has been completed.

Moore was a key member of the management board that renewed easyJet’s strategy, re-energised its reputation, brought a more customer focussed approach and delivered record returns for shareholders.

Before joining easyJet in 2010, Moore was Group Public Affairs and Communications Director for FirstGroup, the world’s largest private sector transport operator and, prior to that, he worked for Virgin Atlantic Airways and Virgin Management for ten years as Director of Corporate Affairs.  Uniquely brand driven and relying heavily on PR to compete against rivals, this was a period when the airline and the Virgin group grew significantly worldwide through innovation and award winning customer service.  Moore started his career as a civil servant and first joined the transport sector with the Department of Transport.

Carolyn McCall, ITV Chief Executive, said:

“Paul has run communications for some fantastic high profile brands and businesses and I’m delighted that he is joining ITV.  He brings with him a wealth of PR experience and communications expertise and will be a real asset to ITV as we refresh the strategy and plan for the future.”

Paul Moore said:

“I have had an amazing seven years at easyJet and have enjoyed every minute of it.  However, I feel that I would benefit from moving on to join one of Britain's best known and most liked companies with lots of new and different challenges to the ones we face at easyJet.

“Making that transition will be made easier by working again with Carolyn and I am really looking forward to joining a great company in a dynamic and exciting sector.”
