Bauer Media Audio UK’s Dee Ford Set to Step Back from her Role as Group Managing Director
Dee Ford has decided to step back from her role as Group Managing Director, Bauer Media Audio UK later this year in order to step into a new chapter of her life, spending more time with her husband and family.
Dee’s career with the business spans more than 35 years, having started in sales at Radio City in Liverpool. Under Dee’s passionate and expert leadership, the UK business has grown to become the scaled and high performing organisation that it is today with national and local services across all four nations of the UK. Dee has also played important roles in the Audio expansion into the Nordics and Ireland in particular.
Richard Dawkins, President of Audio, Bauer Media Group, comments, “The UK business is in great shape, with a healthy and growing radio portfolio, and solid digital foundations in place to enable us to deliver on the exciting opportunities ahead in digital audio over the coming years.
I will miss Dee’s wise counsel, optimism and entrepreneurship, but am pleased to confirm that Dee will stay with us to ensure a smooth and extensive handover to her successor once they are appointed. And there will be plenty of opportunity to wish Dee well for the future later in the year.”
Bauer Media Audio will now commence recruitment for a successor.
