Channel 4 has announced its communications and corporate affairs department will be led by James MacLeod in the new role of Director of Communications & Corporate Affairs.

In the new role he will lead Channel 4's corporate communications, public affairs and stakeholder activity, policy, internal communications and its content and programme PR.

Sophie Jones, Head of Corporate Relations has decided to step down from her role after 12 years to take a short break and pursue new opportunities.

In her time at Channel 4 Sophie has played a significant role in a range of key projects including the formation of the 4AlltheUK plan, its inclusion and diversity strategy, securing the corporation’s public service licence, alongside numerous policy and regulatory campaign successes. She will leave Channel 4 at the end of 2019.

Alex Mahon, CEO Channel 4 said: "Sophie has been a highly valued colleague, giving over a decade of service to Channel 4 and making a significant contribution to some of our most important projects. I'm immensely grateful for the support she’s given me over the last two years and we wish her all the best with whatever challenge she decides to take on next. I have no doubt she’ll make a great success of her next endeavour."
