The CEO of the television industry’s peak body Free TV has quit after just four months in the role.
Brett Savill (pictured above) has decided to leave after determining he wasn’t the right man for the job.
“I have formed the view that the role is not the right fit for me and I believe it is the right thing to do to step aside now so that Free TV can pursue its agenda under a new leader,” Savill said in statement.
