Sir Clive Jones (Chairman)
Sir Clive has been at the heart of the British broadcasting industry for most of his working life, during which he has held many senior posts at ITV, including managing director of the commercial network. He was also chief executive of two of its most successful companies, Central and Carlton.
He trained as a journalist with the Yorkshire Post after graduating from London School of Economics. An experienced chair, he now splits his time between the public and private sector, which has involved chairing the Disasters Emergencies Committee, National Theatre Wales and the Runnymede Trust.
Currently, he is chairman of both ITV pension funds and trustee of the Thomson Foundation, which seeks to underpin ethical journalism in the developing world and newly established democracies in Eastern Europe. Sir Clive has chaired Sightsavers’ UK board since July 2019.
