CNET Networks: UK MD Tom Bureau will leave at the end of the month after five years to concentrate on a new venture. Bureau had recently overseen the relocation of the UK division to new London premises with a big new focus on video production but is now talking with investors and private equity groups, telling Revolution “digital will be at the heart, or a major part of any new venture.” Jill Orr, currently CNET UK’s head of consumer media, will replace Bureau. She joined in 1998 and launched CNET.co.uk back in 2005.
