Friday 11 September, 2015

With Ciaran Davis' recent appointment to the Chief Executive position at parent company APN News & Media, his replacement at Australian Radio Network has been named as Tony Kendall.

Kendall (pictured) joins ARN from Bauer Media where he is currently director of sales. He joined Bauer in early 2013 from News Corp Australia where he spent over 23 years in senior commercial management roles across Melbourne, Sydney and New York including a year as the CEO of the Australian magazine division.

As chief executive of ARN, Tony Kendall will be responsible for driving the overall strategic direction, growth and operations of the radio business, as well as overseeing the expansion of the iHeartRadio platform in Australia.

He will report to Ciaran Davis who said, “Tony’s extensive commercial expertise in developing integrated commercial solutions across multiple platforms means he is very well placed to continue ARN’s growth strategies across its portfolio of brands. Tony is well regarded in the industry and has a deep understanding of the rapidly evolving media landscape in which we operate.

 “It is an exciting time for Tony to be joining APN as the Company continues its strategy of growth across its broad range of assets in Australia, New Zealand and Hong Kong.

Tony Kendall said, “It is a fantastic time to be joining APN as ARN continues to strengthen its proposition for advertisers and consumers. ARN is an innovative media and entertainment company and the market leader with a large and engaged audience base. There is huge opportunity for continued growth and I’m looking forward to working with Ciaran and the ARN management team in continuing the business’ momentum in the market.”
