Seven West Media’s head of corporate affairs Stephen Browning has quit his role and will take-up a similar position outside the media industry.
Browning has been with the network for almost two years and prior to that had held similar roles at News Corp.
B&T understands that Browning will be relocating to Melbourne to take up a position in the resources industry.
During his time at Seven, Browning had to deal with the fallout from its famous Amber Harrison fiasco and the recent and unexpected departure of its CEO, Tim Worner.
In a statement to B&T, Browning insisted that his departure and the arrival of new boss James Warburton were purely coincidental.
“I’ve thoroughly enjoyed my time at Seven – it’s been a privilege to work alongside such a talented and friendly team. But for me it’s time to try my hand at something completely different,” Browning said.
“There are too many people to call out individually, but I do want to particularly thank Kerry and Ryan Stokes and Tim Worner for giving me the opportunity.
“I’m sorry I won’t be part of the next exciting chapter as part of James’ team, but I shall be cheering on from the sidelines,” he said.
