S4C Interim Chief Executive appointed

The S4C Unitary Board has appointed Sioned Wiliam as interim Chief Executive…

Sioned is well known in the industry as a former BBC Radio 4 Comedy Commissioner and former Head of Comedy at ITV. She was previously a programme producer at Talkback and Hat Trick.

She will start her work part-time this month, before joining S4C full-time in April. Sioned’s main responsibility over the coming months will be to lead on S4C’s Action Plan, which has been approved by the Unitary Board, and follows the publication of the Capital Law Report.

The plan sets out a programme of work to fully address the issues S4C has faced since 2022. The aim is to restore the trust of S4C staff and the creative sector by looking at the leadership, culture, HR policies and procedures, and governance of the organisation.

As part of the plan external experts will lead a review of the organisation’s values, there will be an external review of the effectiveness of S4C governance, managers will receive training on leadership and change management, and internal communications will also be strengthened.
