Foxtel Group's chief commercial and content officer and BINGE managing director Amanda Laing has resigned and will be leaving in September.

Her next move is unknown. Laing was previously managing director at Nine before joining Foxtel in April 2018.

CEO of the Foxtel Group, Patrick Delany, said since joining Laing has been instrumental to content strategy and has played a key leadership role in the transformation which has enabled the launch of Kayo, Binge, Flash and Hubbl. 

“Amanda led dozens of negotiations with US studios for content and channel acquisitions, as well as supported the business as a leading executive on our sports rights deals," he said.

"She has made an outstanding contribution to the growth of subscribers and revenue which the Foxtel Group has seen during her tenure, and I thank her for the commitment and passion she has always brought to her role.” 

Laing said she is very proud of the transformation and growth over the last six years. 

"I’ve had the privilege to work across both sport and entertainment, my two great loves, to drive strategic change and to deliver the best content in the world for our customers," she said.

"We are all lucky to work in an industry which values innovation, creativity, intellect and drive. 

“Harnessing these to deliver revenue and negotiate innovative deals to drive growth for Foxtel Group and its partners has been my focus and I know the talented teams at the Foxtel Group will continue this work under Patrick’s leadership.”
