MediaWorks has announced the appointment of Glen Kyne as the group’s chief commercial officer, formalising his current position of acting chief commercial officer.
Kyne has been with MediaWorks since 2014, initially serving as the director of integrated content before moving over to the role of chief new ventures officer.
Having served in a variety of executive and general manager roles across a range of sectors, Kyne brings more than 20 years of sales and management experience to the role.
MediaWorks group chief executive Michael Anderson was optimistic about Kyne taking on the role, which will require him to oversee a team of 160 across the sales and integration departments.
“He brings a wealth of experience from both within MediaWorks and externally across a wide range of commercial projects and operations,” Anderson says. “I have no doubt he’ll continue his outstanding work and I am looking forward to working closely with him to further strengthen our position in the market.”
Kyne succeeds former chief commercial officer Mark David, who moved into the role as part of commercial reshuffle at the beginning of the year.
David resigned from his role two months ago.
At this stage it’s unclear whether he has secured a new position elsewhere.
