Matt Rennie and Anthony Lilleyman to step down as Channel 4 integrates Box into business operations

Channel 4 today announced that Matt Rennie, Managing Director and Anthony Lilleyman, Chief Operating Officer of The Box Plus Network, will step down from their roles later this year as the Box Plus Network is fully integrated into Channel 4’s business operations.

This follows Channel 4 acquiring full ownership of The Box Plus Network in January when it bought the remaining 50% stake in the network it did not previously own from Bauer Media Group. The acquisition and subsequent integration of all Box Plus Network staff enables Channel 4 to increase value across the Box Plus Network and Channel 4 portfolios – and supercharge its wider strategy to enhance engagement with young audiences.

Box Plus Network staff will be integrated into teams at Channel 4’s Horseferry Road office in London from September.
