Arqiva takes on Channel 4 development chief

Arqiva has appointed Matt Rennie, Channel 4’s business development manager for content and distribution, as commercial head of its video-on-demand service SeeSaw.

Before joining Channel 4, Rennie was senior commercial manager at Virgin Media and business development manager at online, mobile and cable broadcaster Music Choice.

Rennie has been appointed to the role of commercial director, despite speculation the position would be filled by Richard Knight, former strategy and distribution manager at Channel 4. Knight left Channel 4 last December to set up his own consultancy, which has recently been working with SeeSaw on projects.
