Higginson’s appointment is part of a move to reduce the influence of directors nominated by News Corp, the US media group that owns BSkyB.

He will join the board along with Nicholas Ferguson, chief executive of SVG Capital, which will, for the first time, create a majority of independent non-executive directors on the board at the pay-TV group.

BSkyB is also set to name a new finance director shortly to replace Martin Stewart.
