HT&E changes its leadership team

A series of further management changes within HT&E and ARN’s corporate division have been announced, as the company moves towards a "simplified and reenergised Executive Leadership Team structure" across both businesses.

ARN’s Chief Commercial Officer Emma-Jayne Owens will leave ARN and the role of Commercial Director Sydney & Brisbane held by Mason Rook has been made redundant.

Peter Whitehead who is currently ARN’s Commercial Director Melbourne & Adelaide will move into the role of Chief Commercial Officer and he will also be joining the Executive Leadership Team.

Peter will take up the national position today and will continue to be based in Melbourne.

In addition to the changes at ARN, with the recent sale of Adshel and repositioning of the business, two roles within the HT&E Commercial team have been made redundant, which means Tony Kendall, Chief Revenue Officer, and Greg Tremain, Partnerships Director will leave the business.

HT&E CEO & Managing Director Ciaran Davis said “I would sincerely like to thank EJ, Mason, Tony and Greg for their contribution to ARN and HT&E and we wish them all the very best.

 “EJ joined us in 2017 in the newly created role of Chief Commercial Officer and during her time at ARN was part of the Executive Team in renewing ARN’s vision and made progress in reviewing ARN’s commercial approach to market. Mason joined ARN a year ago and in that time has made a significant contribution to the Sydney and Brisbane markets.

 “I would like to thank Tony and Greg for their tireless efforts in taking the group proposition to market and to Tony in particular for his previous leadership as CEO at ARN.

 “I congratulate Peter on his new position as Chief Commercial Officer. Pete has driven some great success in the Melbourne and Adelaide markets and we look forward to having him in this expanded role.

 “As I’ve said recently, HT&E is a fantastic business with a portfolio of high quality investments, and a balance sheet the envy of the traditional media sector. These changes are a result of our objectives to optimise the cost structure, reduce corporate costs and ultimately set the business up for ongoing operational effectiveness and further growth. ARN underpins HT&E as a market leading radio business and I’m looking forward to working with all our team to achieve ARN’s vision to create the future of audio entertainment focussing on our strengths in content creation, audience delivery and our relationships with advertisers.”
