Executive Board

The Executive Board runs the BBC. It is responsible for delivering the BBC’s services in accordance with the strategy agreed with the BBC Trust, and for all aspects of operational management.

The Director-General is chairman of the Executive Board, as well as chief executive and editor-in-chief of the BBC; he is appointed by the BBC Trust. The Board is made up of executive directors from within the BBC and a number of non-executive directors, who bring external expertise and insight to the operation of the Board.

The Executive Board meets most months, and a summary of the minutes is published online once they have been approved at the subsequent meeting.

Executive Team

In addition to the directors who make up the Board, other directors are engaged in the Executive Team, which looks at pan-BBC issues and ensures that all divisions are involved in delivering the BBC’s objectives.
