BBC reported the move today, saying it is part of the company’s restructuring. Bennett has led BBC Worldwide since last February after 8 years as director of BBC Vision, responsible for the corporation’s TV channels. BBC says the restructure will see Worldwide’s five global divisions reorganized into seven geographical regions. “I am delighted to have grown the BBC’s international channel portfolio at a time when global markets are so highly competitive and to have brought quality British programmes and events to new audiences around the world,” Bennett said. Bennett will leave the company in the late autumn.
