APN News & Media has announced a raft of changes to its executive team to reflect its strategic growth plans.

Australian Radio Network CEO Tony Kendall (above) will be elevated to take on the newly-created role of chief revenue officer for the APN group.

After five years as CEO of Adshel, Rob Atkinson will replace Kendall as ARN’s new boss. Adshels’ chief commercial officer, Mike Tyquin, has subsequently been promoted to CEO.

APN chief executive Ciaran Davis said the changes to the executive team reflected the company’s ambitions to reposition itself as one of the leading media operators in the market, and will significantly contribute to optimising value creating integration across the group.

“The appointments are crucial to our future growth and will ensure we can meet the challenges of the competitive and evolving media environment,” she said.

“In this newly-created role of APN chief revenue officer, Tony Kendall will be responsible for leading and driving integrated group revenue across all of APN’s assets, and delivering tier-one solutions to our customers.

“Tony’s extensive history across several sectors in media both in Australia and overseas makes him the perfect choice to lead this new division within the group.”

Davis said Atkinson’s experience at Clear Channel UK and Adshel has given him the skills and experience to lead ARN into its next phase of growth as a multi-platform entertainment company.

“And Mike Tyquin’s promotion to CEO [of] Adshel will allow him to bring his unique insight into the outdoor industry, developed over 20 years of senior and strategic experience,” she said.

The appointments of Kendall, Atkinson and Tyquin will take effect from the beginning of April.

APN also announced that Justin Stone has joined its newly-created business development team as director of research and insights. Stone joins APN from Bauer Media, where he worked as research director since 2005.

Furthermore, Emma Hogan has been appointed as APN’s new chief people officer, and will be responsible for driving the overall strategic direction of the group’s HR function.

Hogan joins APN from Foxtel, where she was executive director of customer experience. Prior to that, she worked as Foxtel’s executive director of people, culture and internal communications for eight years.
