NewsMediaWorks has announced the resignation of CEO Mark Hollands after almost four years with the organisation.

Under Hollands’ leadership, NewsMediaWorks has undertaken a series of initiatives to support Australia’s leading news media publishers and communicate the sector’s value proposition to advertisers.

These include the 2013 launch of the cross-platform readership metric emma (Enhanced Media Metrics Australia), rebranding the organisation to reflect the multi-platform nature of today’s news media publishers, and implementing the News Media Index, which reports whole of industry advertising revenue.

NewsMediaWorks chairman Michael Miller thanked Hollands on behalf of the organisation’s board for his contribution not only to NewsMediaWorks, but the news media sector.

“The industry body will continue to focus on helping create operational efficiencies for the benefit of all publisher members,” he said in a statement.

Commenting on his resignation, Hollands thanked his colleagues for their continuous contribution to the news media industry.

“They share my love of this industry and respect for those who work so hard to deliver journalism to our nation every day. It has been a pleasure to work with them,” he said.

“The time is right to move on, however, as I have a number of personal interests in Australia and overseas that I wish to pursue.”

Hollands will depart the organisation on Tuesday 28 February.

The board said it will conduct a search for a new CEO to continue the organisation’s work in areas such as industry co-operation.
