Eleanor Van Heyningen

Head of Digital Transition

“As the rapid pace of change continues in the TV market, it’s wonderful to be working with such a diverse and well-informed group of colleagues to identify the issues we all need to understand and debate. We’re united in wanting to make sure the 2024 Summit focuses on the huge opportunities as well as the risks such rapid change poses for industry and  - most importantly – audiences.”

Eleanor leads the Digital Transition team within BBC Distribution & Business Development, planning the shift away from broadcast towards online distribution of  BBC content and services.  She’s held a number of posts at the BBC, including coordinating BBC relationships with Big Tech partners, being Chief of Staff to the BBC’s Chief Product and Technology Officer, and working on the 2016 Charter Review.  That followed ten years in the Civil Service where Eleanor also held variety of roles leading policy teams and advising Ministers. Her career started working in museums, and she has degrees in history and museum studies.
