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.

Dominic was this year named as a top 20 Ethnic Minority Executive Role Model internationally by EMpower – a global list that honours leaders who are driving the charge for inclusion in the workplace and most recently, the recipient of the Champion of the Year Award in the UK Social Mobility Awards.
