Dominic Carter

Chief Commercial officer, News UK

Dominic is responsible for all commercial revenues across the News UK market-leading portfolio of publishing brands as well as the revenues at Wireless, overseeing the success of the UK's most dynamic broadcast brands in the UK; talkSPORT, Times radio, Virgin and talkRADIO. In addition to his commercial responsibilities, he also instigated the creation of a company-wide Diversity Board at News UK and now sits as its Chair, leading the team to deliver a comprehensive D&I strategy for News UK based on three pillars: a recruitment function ensuring more diverse young talent joins the business; the creation of new pathways to leadership for existing diverse talent; and a renewed focus on ensuring diversity across the company’s brands (The Times, The Sunday Times, The Sun, Virgin Radio, Times Radio). Together these programs constitute News UK’s commitment to achieving 50:50:20 male:female:ethnic minority representation. Dominic was also responsible for setting up a Cultural Diversity Network as a forum to freely debate how D&I issues affect News UK’s employees, and a means of challenging perceived wisdom in leadership. Other projects which Dominic has been involved with include sponsoring and supporting Sachini Imbuldeniya to set up Studio PI, a new photography and illustration agency promoting underrepresented talent.
