      British Sky Broadcasting (Sky) announced today a number of senior management
      appointments.

      Mike Darcey, Sky's Group Commercial and Strategy Director, becomes Chief
      Operating Officer. Mr Darcey has made important contributions to the company's
      growth and strategic development and with this new and expanded role will
      continue to support the business on a broad basis.

      Brian Sullivan, Sky's Director of Product Strategy and Management, is appointed
      to the position of Managing Director, Customer Group with responsibility for
      leading the company's marketing, product development and customer service
      teams. Mr Sullivan, who has been instrumental in Sky's multi-product strategy
      through the successful launch of Sky+, multiroom, Sky HD and Sky Broadband,
      takes up the role following the announcement that Jon Florsheim, Sky's Chief
      Marketing Officer and Managing Director, Customer Group, is to leave the company
      after 12 years to become Chief Executive of Homeserve GB and an Executive
      Director of Homeserve plc.

      Matthew Anderson, Sky's Group Director for Communications, assumes the new role
      of Group Director for Communications and Brand Marketing, taking on
      responsibility for brand marketing in addition to leadership of the company's
      publicity, corporate communications, public affairs, internal communications and
      corporate responsibility activities. By bringing together all of these
      functions, Sky aims to ensure a strongly integrated approach to brand
      communications across all audiences.

      Didier Lebrat is to join Sky in December 2006 in the newly-created role of Chief
      Technology Officer from Vodafone Italy, where he currently holds the same
      title. The creation of the new role brings together the leadership of Sky's
      Information Technology, Customer Technology, Network Infrastructure and
      Broadcast Platform teams. In providing single leadership, Sky aims to ensure
      that its technology operations are closely aligned with its changing needs as it
      grows its pay-TV business and expands into the broadband and telephony markets.

      Monday, 7 April 2008 - British Sky Broadcasting Group plc (‘BSkyB' or ‘the Company') announces today the appointment of Andrew Griffith as its Chief Financial Officer (CFO). Mr Griffith, who was previously BSkyB's Director of Group Finance, M&A and Investor Relations, joins the Company's Board with immediate effect. The appointment follows a thorough internal and external search process conducted by the Board.

      Separately, Danny Rimer has today joined the Board as an Independent Non-Executive Director. Mr Rimer is a General Partner of the venture capital firm Index Ventures, where he has overseen investments in media and internet companies including Skype, Last.fm, Spot Runner, Lovefilm and Joost.

      Jeremy Darroch, BSkyB's Chief Executive, said:

      “Andrew is a key member of Sky's leadership team and has made a significant contribution to the growth of our business. His detailed knowledge of the company and wider industry and his strong technical skills made him the outstanding candidate for CFO. This appointment is evidence of our strength in depth and positions us well for the future.”

      Mr McWilliam will lead Sky's Corporate Communications, Policy and Public Affairs, Internal Communications and Reputation and Responsibility functions. He will report to Chief Executive, Jeremy Darroch.

      Commenting on the appointments, Jeremy Darroch said:

      “Graham and Robert are both outstanding communications executives who will provide first class leadership in their new roles. The fact that we have been able to make two such important appointments internally is testimony to depth of talent at Sky. I am grateful to Matthew for his help and support, and for the significant contribution he has made to Sky, both in brand marketing that is seeing Sky grow quickly in the wider arena of entertainment and communications and in increasing recognition of the outstanding contribution Sky makes to life in Britain.”

      No worries Steve, I don't know if you are aware, on the links I gave, you can signup to a mailing list, once a new Press Release is issued, you get notified via email.
