Ciaran Davis back in the saddle at ARN

Ciaran Davis

It was just over three years ago that then ARN CEO Ciaran Davis was bumped upstairs to head up the parent company APN. 
Much has changed since then. 
For a start APN is now called Here There and Everywhere (HT&E) and ARN has had two CEOs in that time.
Now Ciaran Davis is back. The radio leadership team will now report directly to him as Managing Director & CEO.  As a result, the role of ARN CEO will no longer exist therefore Rob Atkinsonwill leave the business in early 2019 after a period of transition and handover.
Hamish McLennan, Chairman of HT&E said “We’re focused on streamlining the organisational structure between the Corporate and ARN divisions with one Managing Director/CEO across HT&E and ARN, allowing us to optimise the cost structure, reduce corporate costs and ultimately set the business up for ongoing operational effectiveness and further growth. Ciaran is perfectly placed to lead the business into the next phase of its growth.”
Mr Davis said “I would sincerely like to thank Rob for his contribution to ARN, driving a new vision for the business during significant change to our show and talent line up. I would also like to pay tribute to the vital role he played running Adshel for five years.
“I’m excited to be working even more closely with the ARN Executive team to achieve their vision to create the future of audio entertainment.  HT&E is a fantastic business underpinned by ARN and a balance sheet the envy of the traditional media sector.  This structure will allow us to look at growth opportunities across the sector where we can further leverage our natural strengths and focus with content creation, audience delivery and our relationships with advertisers.”
