Embattled Foxtel Snares CBA’s Paul Edwards For Chief Comms Role

Foxtel has announced the appointment of Paul Edwards (main photo) as chief communications officer.  

Edwards joins Foxtel from CBA where he has been a senior advisor in group corporate affairs since 2018.

Previously, Edwards was a long-serving senior executive at ANZ Banking Group where he lead corporate communications with group-wide responsibility for communications strategy, media relations, internal communications and digital and social media. 

Edwards had previously worked at BHP and in public relations consultancy. 

In his new role, Edwards will report directly to Foxtel CEO Patrick Delany and also join the broader News Corp Australia communications team led by group executive, corporate affairs, policy and government relations, Campbell Reid.  

Delany said Edward’s appointment strengthened Foxtel’s communications team at a crucial time as the company pursued its ambitious business transformation.

“Paul’s extensive business and communications experience adds an important skill set to our management team at a time when engagement with external stakeholders and our own people about our strategy has never been more important.” 

“We are already seeing positive momentum in strengthening Foxtel for the future and we look forward to Paul’s contribution as part of our strengthened communications team,” Delany said.
