ONdigital sales and marketing director Guy Laurence is about to follow in the footsteps of his four former co-directors who have quit the Carlton/Granada-owned digital TV network. Of ONdigital’s six founding directors, only financial director Jeanette Wilkinson will survive his departure.

Laurence is to stay with the company for a few weeks more while completing its autumn marketing plans. He will then join international web project, Vizzavi – a three-way joint venture between mobile telecoms giant Vodafone Airtouch, French media and utilities group Vivendi and French pay-TV group Canal Plus.

ONdigital recently reported a 15% rise in subscriptions to 774,000 during the last three months, and projected these would reach two million by the end of 2002 [WAMN, 12-Jul-00].
