Neillis exits Sky Vision after short stint

Angela Neillis has exited Sky Vision less than three months after joining the UK distributor from BBC Worldwide to head acquisitions.

The sales arm of pay TV platform BSkyB is hunting a new head of acquisitions following Neillis’s departure, which was confirmed this morning.

She had joined Sky Vision in January following Sky’s acquisition and rebranding of Partnenon Entertainment, as part of a push to monetise the News Corp-backed satcaster’s original programming library.

She had previously been commercial manager, broadcast comedy at BBC Worldwide’s indie unit.

“Angela made a real contribution to Sky Vision during her short time with the company. We wish her well for the future and are recruiting for her replacement,” said a Sky Vision spokesman in a statement.
