BBC Worldwide has announced that Jana Bennett, president of Worldwide Networks and the global iPlayer, is to step down in late autumn.

Bennett’s departure comes in the wake of a reorganisation of the company which has seen focus shift from divisional to geographic lines.

Bennett said: “Today's announcement about the new organisation of BBC Worldwide, with regions in future holding P&L responsibility, is an important step in securing the future growth of BBC Worldwide enabling it to compete more effectively in the global market and deliver increasing returns to the BBC.

“I was pleased to have played a significant role in the organisational design process and fully support the changes under John Smith's [BBC Worldwide CEO] leadership. However with the move of P&L responsibility under the new structure I feel this is a good moment for me to work outside BBC Worldwide.”

Worldwide Networks is the biggest revenue generator for BBC Worldwide following the introduction of 13 channel services from New Zealand to Thailand.
