Seven West Media has announced Tim Worner’s appointment to the board as managing director & chief executive officer of Seven West Media. The company also announced the Board appointment of Sheila McGregor, Jeffrey Kennett AC and Michael Malone as non-executive directors.

The appointments follow the retirement of Graeme John AO, Doug Flynn and Don Voelte AO over the past twelve months. At the time of John’s and Flynn’s retirements, the company indicated that the Board was reviewing its composition and intended appointing new independent directors in this financial year.

The chairman of Seven West Media, Kerry Stokes AC, said: “Beyond building our leadership in our media businesses, much has been undertaken over the past twelve months in changing how we do business: in particular building our creative content, managing our costs and driving greater synergies across our media businesses. We have also undertaken a far-ranging review of our Board structure and composition following the retirement of Graeme, Doug and Don, each of whom have played such a vital and important role in our company.

“We are delighted that Sheila, Jeff and Michael have agreed to join the Board at such an exciting and important time for our business. We are also pleased to appoint Tim to the Board. Each has made outstanding contributions to the development of businesses and importantly also continue to do so much for the broader community.

“We are looking forward to Tim, Sheila, Jeff and Michael joining John Alexander, Michelle Deaker, Peter Gammell, Ryan Stokes and David Evans on a strong, energised Board.

“The past twelve months has seen our businesses build on their leadership. Much has been done to put in place the structures that will allow us to manage our costs, drive greater efficiencies and drive home our leadership in the creation of content that Australians are seeking. More is to be done as Seven West Media moves to the next level in its development as a leading integrated media company across broadcast television, publishing and online and new forms of content delivery.”

The appointment of three new independent directors and Seven West Media’s CEO, Tim Worner, to the Board adds further depth and strength to a well-credentialed Board.
