Jacky Brandreth, currently head of marketing, communications and audiences for BBC Nations and Regions will take Kellie’s role as head of brand and planning.

Brandreth’s role will include heading the BBC’s branding strategies, media planning and audience services. She will also lead the current advertising agency roster review process, which is expected to end later this month.
