Chairman of SGH, Kerry Stokes, said: “We are pleased that Don has accepted this new challenge at SGH. His track record as an outstanding business executive speaks for itself. In his role as a director and then as CEO of Seven West Media, his contributions in implementing fundamental changes at Seven West Media have placed that company in a strong position to meet the demands of a challenging media and consumer landscape.”

Voelte said that he’s looking forward to this new role.

“Seven Group Holdings is a great company. Like a lot of companies across a number of sectors right now, it is operating in a difficult market. But it has great people, great brands and a terrific long-term partnership with Caterpillar through its WesTrac business. I am excited to get to work in this role but first I am dedicated to ensuring a successful transition of the CEO role at Seven West Media."

Gammell added: “Having spent over two decades as a commuting executive from Perth, I have decided to step back from  the day-to-day responsibilities of my public role as CEO of SGH, the challenges of which I have thoroughly enjoyed."
