The Managing Director of BT Sport and BT TV is leaving after a three-year stint that saw the company’s customer base increase by 72 percent.
Delia Bushell, who has led the divisions since July 2014, will leave at the beginning of June.
The exec, who joined BT from Sky in 2014, said it had been a “difficult decision” but that now she could “confidently hand over the baton”.
John Petter, CEO of BT Consumer, said: “Delia leaves with our very best wishes for the future, having made a major contribution to the development of both BT TV and BT Sport. She leaves behind a strong team that she developed during her time here.”
BT said it would announce a succession plan for the business “in due course”.
Bushell’s tenure has seen the operator’s TV customer base grow from just over one million in June 2014 to 1.7 million as of December 2016.
In this time she has overseen the launch of BT’s European football coverage, BT Sport app and 4K ultra HD services.
Bushell has also signed new content partnerships, including with US cable network AMC.
The operator took its first steps towards monetising some of these acquisitions earlier this year.
Bushell's departure comes just days ahead of the publication of BT’s full-year financial results.
