APN News & Media shuffles executive team
Date: 14 March 2017
APN News & Media has announced a reshuffle of its executives, promoting Tony Kendall to the new position of chief revenue officer of the group, with Rob Atkinson, current CEO of Adshel, replacing Kendall as CEO of Australian Radio Network (ARN). Atkinson is set to develop ARN’s multi-platform offering to advertisers and audiences in his new role as CEO. In a statement, APN noted Atkinson had “transformed Adshel, culminating in a record year for both revenue and EBITDA”.
Former chief commercial officer of Adshel, Mike Tyquin, will replace Atkinson as Adshel CEO overseeing the New Zealand and Australian market. The appointments aim to bolster the company’s media operations in the market and integrate value across the group.
Ciaran Davis, CEO and managing director of APN, said: “These appointments are crucial to our future growth and will ensure we can meet the challenges of the competitive and evolving media environment.”
The three appointments take effect in April.
