Sky CEO Jeremy Darroch oversees Europe’s leading media company – and largest pay-TV broadcaster – counting 23 million subscribers and 31,000 employees as of 2019.
Under his long tenure, Sky acquired Now TV and Sky Go, two streaming services allowing content to be watched on the move, and expanded operations into Italy, Germany and Spain.
In 2018, Sky became the most valuable UK company sold in recent decades when Comcast, the largest provider of cable television in the US, paid £30bn ($38bn) for the company.
Darroch started off at Procter and Gamble, rising up to become European finance director of its healthcare business. He joined Sky in 2004, initially as Chief Financial Officer, before taking over as CEO in 2007.
