Kevin Crull is CTVglobemedia COO from January

MUMBAI: Canadian company CTVglobemedia has announced that Kevin Crull will join COO, effective 1 January, 2011. He will report directly to CTVglobemedia president and CEO Ivan Fecan.

Fecan says, "Kevin Crull has a great reputation as a seasoned
executive leader and innovator in Canadian communications and is well regarded in the industry for his deep understanding of both digital and conventional media. By building industry-leading distribution and delivering world-class content to Canadians when, where and how they want it, he has built Bell‘s TV, broadband and online portal businesses into digital media leaders. I am very pleased to bring Kevin‘s proven strategic and operational expertise to CTVglobemedia."
Fecan has announced that he will retire on the completion of Bell‘s acquisition of CTV, at which time Crull will assume the position of CTV president.

Crull is currently Bell Residential Services president, Bell Canada‘s largest wireline division, responsible for Bell Internet, Bell Satellite TV, Bell Fibe TV, the Sympatico online portal, and Bell Home Phone.

Since joining Bell five years ago, Crull has led Bell TV to its
position as the fastest growing and largest digital TV provider in Canada, expanding from just 20 HD channels in 2005 to more than 100 today - the most in Canada. 
Crull most recently oversaw the launches of Bell Fibe Internet and Bell Fibe TV, a next-generation television service operating on broadband fibre networks that is now available in Toronto and Montreal.
Last month Bell had announced it would acquire CTV in order to enhance its ability to deliver video and other media services across its fast-growing broadband fibre and high-speed wireless networks. The transaction is subject to customary approvals, including approvals from the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) and the Competition Bureau. Closing of the transaction is expected by mid-2011.
