The chief executive of EasyJet, Carolyn McCall is moving to become the chief executive of commercial broadcaster, ITV.
She has been at EasyJet for seven years and takes over running ITV from former boss Adam Crozier.
Ms McCall will join the company in January next year on a salary of £900,000 a year, plus pension and possible bonus and incentives.
Before running EasyJet, Ms McCall was chief executive at the Guardian.
She also is a non-executive director at fashion company Burberry, sits on the board of the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy and is a trustee at the Royal Academy.
She said the decision to leave EasyJet had not been easy, but after seven years at the company the time was right for a move.
John Barton, EasyJet chairman, said: “”I speak for absolutely everyone at EasyJet in saying we will be sorry to see Carolyn leave and that we wish her well in her exciting new role.”
