NBC News announced a new chief financial officer, naming Adam Jones to the position. Jones, whose appointment is effective immediately, will report to both NBC Universal Television Group Executive Vice President/CFO Howard Averill and NBC News President Steve Capus.

Jones joins NBC News from NBC Universal Global Networks in London where most recently he was CFO from March 2003 to March 2006. He replaces Catherine Petrello, who left the position earlier this year to join another NBC U finance initiative.

“As News Division CFO, Adam will play a key role in helping us navigate through challenges of the changing news environment,” Averill said. “His proven ability to manage complex projects and deadlines coupled with his proactive problem solving approach makes him a terrific addition to this team.”

“I am thrilled to welcome Adam to the News division,” Capus said . “With a continual emphasis on growth and digital expansion, coupled with the demands of our day-to-day and long-term news coverage, this is a critical position, and Adam brings impressive credentials and expertise that will be invaluable.”

Prior to his tenure with NBC U Global Networks, Jones spent four years at PriceWaterhouseCoopers, and more than nine years at International Management Group.
