Seven West Media today announced the appointment of Warwick Lynch as chief financial officer. Lynch will report to managing director and chief executive officer, Tim Worner.

Commenting Worner said: “I couldn’t be more pleased to announce that Warwick has accepted this position. His promotion confirms his professionalism and also underlines our strength in building and developing our own people. He has already played such a key role in creating the framework for our company’s future. Over a number of years, but more particularly over this period as Acting CFO, he has displayed his credentials in capital management, stakeholder engagement and driving financial performance across our company.”

Lynch’s appointment follows a considered approach by the company to actively identify potential candidates and look at the people and structures to continue to drive the company’s development across all forms of the production and delivery of content and audience engagement that follows.

Lynch said: “Seven West Media continues to take the lead in a changing and competitive landscape. Twenty years ago I commenced at Seven in a role which combined my two loves of television and sport and since then have been fortunate to have participated in Seven’s evolution into a diversified media group. The pace of change has only increased over the recent period. I am looking forward to the challenge of this position and to continue to work with a great finance team and broader management group.”

Lynch’s appointment is effective immediately.

Commenting, the chairman of Seven West Media, Kerry Stokes, said: “On behalf of the Board, we are pleased that Warwick is taking on this next step in his career. Warwick has done a terrific job as Acting CFO. But what is more important is Warwick’s role in our company over a number of years in some of the most significant and important aspects of our success and our progress.”
