Current CEO of ARN, Tony Kendall, will be elevated to take on a newly created APN Group Role as Chief Revenue Officer.
Rob Atkinson, (left) current CEO of Adshel, will replace Tony Kendall as the CEO at ARN.
He has been Chief Executive of Adshel for five years where he has transformed the business, culminating in a record year for both revenue and EBITDA.
Mike Tyquin (left) will replace Rob Atkinson as CEO of Adshel, after serving as Chief Commercial Officer since May 2014.
He has over 20 years' experience in the outdoor media sector and has been central to developing and delivering Adshel's successful digital roll-out in the last 18 months, as well as overseeing strong growth in the New Zealand market.
"In this newly created role of APN Chief Revenue Officer, Tony Kendall will be responsible for leading and driving integrated group revenue across all of APN's assets, and delivering tier one solutions to our customers. Tony's extensive history across several sectors in media both in Australia and overseas makes him the perfect choice to lead this new division within the Group.
"We are very pleased to have Rob Atkinson move across to CEO of ARN. His experience at Clear Channel UK and five subsequent years at Adshel have given him the skills and experience to lead ARN into its next phase of growth as a multi-platform entertainment company.
"And Mike Tyquin's promotion to CEO Adshel will allow him to bring his unique insight into the outdoor industry, developed over 20 years of senior and strategic experience."
Tony, Rob and Mike's appointments will take effect from the beginning of April.
In another new appointment, Justin Stone has joined the newly created Business Development team in the role of Director, Research and Insights, reporting to Tony Kendall. Justin is well versed in media research and data insights, and has been with Bauer Media since 2005.
Emma joins APN from Foxtel where she was Executive Director Customer Experience until June 2016, and prior was the Executive Director People, Culture & Internal Communications for eight years.
