Animal Planet Chief Susanna Dinnage Steps Down to Run English Premier League

Animal Planet Chief Susanna Dinnage Steps Down to Run English Premier League

Now global president of Discovery's Animal Planet brand, Dinnage will start her role in the new year once Scudamore steps down after 19 years in charge.

Scudamore, who is stepping down after 19 years with the Premier League, is reportedly paid £2.5 million (A$4.5 million) a season.

"She is a leading figure in the broadcasting industry, a proven business executive and a great developer of people".

For the last four years, Scudamore has combined the roles of chief executive and executive chairman, but the two roles are now to be split, with the latter still to be named.

"Access to talented footballers from Europe has played a key part in the growth of the Premier League, with attendance and global interest increasing as high-quality foreign players have taken their place in the competition with the best British and Irish players".

This week, it announced that Susanna Dinnage, a senior executive at the USA media group Discovery Inc, would become its new chief executive, with its veteran boss Richard Scudamore retiring as executive chairman in the new year.

While running Discovery's British operation previous year, Dinnage threatened to remove their portfolio of channels from the Sky platform in a row over costs.

A five-person panel, led by the Chelsea chairman Bruce Buck, was tasked with recommending a preferred candidate to a meeting of Premier League clubs this month.

"The FA and the Premier League have a strong and successful relationship and we look forward to building on that under Susanna's new leadership".

Dinnage takes charge as executive chairman, with the search for a non-executive chair now set to commence.

'We are very pleased to appoint such a capable leader to this important role, ' he said.

"Richard Scudamore, having provided exceptional stewardship for nearly 20 years, will leave us at the end of the year in great shape and with an excellent Executive Team and Board able to fully support Susanna".

"We are continuing to work with the Premier League, EFL (English Football League) and a range of government departments, including: DCMS (Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport); Home Office; Treasury during this consultation period", an FA spokesperson told Reuters.

Scudamore joined the Premier League in November 1999 as chief executive before becoming executive chairman in June 2014.

"We would like to reiterate our thanks to Richard Scudamore for his passion and dedication to English football over the past 20 years", Clarke added.
