Martin Stewart has submitted a formal application for the top job following the departure of Tony Ball as chief executive. James Murdoch, the younger son of BSkyB chairman Rupert Murdoch is currently the front runner for the role.

The move comes at a time when the company’s non-executive directors met with the National Association of Pension Funds, following concerns raised by the body over management changes.

BSkyB assured NAPF that it would comply with corporate governance rules and conduct a proper search for the position, according to the FT.
