Stephen Miron to step down as Group CEO of Global

Global has announced that its Group Chief Executive, Stephen Miron, intends to step down next March after 16 years at the helm.

Stephen will remain as Group CEO in the interim period and then become Chairman of Global at the end of March 2025. At that time Global’s Chairman of 17 years, Lord Charles Allen, will become Senior Non-Executive Director of Global.

Stephen Miron joined Global’s Founder and Executive President, Ashley Tabor-King CBE, in 2008. Together with Lord Allen, who joined Global in 2007 when it was founded, they revolutionised the commercial radio market, returning it to growth after years of decline. Global is now the biggest commercial radio company in the UK, with market-leading brands including Capital, Heart and LBC, one of the UK’s fastest growing entertainment apps, Global Player, and a slate of award-winning and chart-topping podcasts.

In 2018 Global diversified and strengthened its media business with the acquisition of three outdoor companies, making it the largest out-of-home advertising company in the UK. It is now Europe’s largest Radio and Outdoor company.

Stephen has been representing Global on the Radiocentre board since 2009.
