BBC announces new HR leader

BBC announces new HR leader

The BBC has appointed Lucy Adams, currently HR director at law firm Eversheds, to lead HR at the corporation.

Adams will take over as director, BBC People, on 1 June, stepping into the shoes of Stephen Kelly, who left to join Logica at the beginning of the year. She will lead a 475-strong HR team, also taking responsibility for the BBC’s outsourced HR services and sitting on the BBC executive board.

The move is her second within a year, having joined Eversheds in May 2008. Before that she was HR director at Serco Group, where she worked for nine years.

Announcing the appointment, BBC director-general Mark Thompson said: “The BBC can only achieve its goals of serving audiences through a strong, creative and well-motivated workforce. I believe Adams has the energy, vision and the right experience to help us achieve this.”

Adams added: “The BBC is a unique organisation. Its staff create output and services that are hugely valued by countless millions around the world. It is a privilege to join the BBC and make a contribution to the challenging climate ahead.”
