Network Ten has announced that executive general manager, Sydney, Louise Barrett, has decided to leave the company, effective 30 June.
Barrett has held her current role since September 2015, joining Network Ten in March 2013 as chief sales officer.
Network Ten chief executive officer, Paul Anderson, said, “Louise has made an enormously valuable and important contribution to our business over the past three years, culminating in the innovative partnership with Multi Channel Network [‘MCN’], a partnership that has transformed the way television advertising air-time is sold in Australia.

“She leaves Ten with our sincere thanks and very best wishes for the future.”
Barrett added, “I remain extremely passionate about Ten and the position it has carved out for itself in the market.

“I have the utmost respect for the staff, the on-air talent and the dedicated leadership team, which I have sincerely enjoyed being a part of over the past three years, and I am now excited to embark on my next new challenge.”
