Jonathan Patrick, head of group procurement at commercial broadcaster ITV, is to leave his position at the end of the year.

Patrick has worked for the company since 2004, appointed shortly after the merger between Granada and Carlton. He was responsible for setting up the firm's first purchasing function.

In a statement he said he had enjoyed the challenges presented by the role and was confident his team would continue to improve in the future.

Mike Green, ITV's deputy director of finance, said: "Jonathan has done a great job in getting procurement at ITV to where it is today. In the four years he has led the team it has delivered significant value back to the business."

He added Patrick had laid the foundation to deliver further savings in the future. ITV is now searching for a replacement, and head of procurement Angela Porter will take over the function in the interim.

The company also confirmed it has hired Boston Consulting Group to identify savings across the business. Earlier this year the broadcaster announced it intended to make an extra £35 million cost savings per year by 2010, in addition to the £41 million it will deliver by the end of 2008.
