ITV's commercial director Sarah Speake to join Clear Channel

ITV's director of commercial marketing and research Sarah Speake has joined Clear Channel as chief marketing officer.

Speake, who joined the commercial broadcaster in September 2013, had previously spent seven years at Google, most recently as strategic marketing director.

Andrew Morley, chief executive of Clear Channel UK, said: "We are delighted to have further strengthened our senior leadership team with Sarah’s appointment. Sarah brings a wealth of experience to the role. Not only is she commercially and technically savvy, she also joins us with a well-deserved reputation as a motivator, coach and mentor."

At the time of writing, The Drum was awaiting clarification of who would pick up her duties at ITV and when a successor would likely be in place.

Speake will take up the new role from March.
