Michael Anderson resigns as MediaWorks CEO

It has been announced today that MediaWork’s CEO Michael Anderson has resigned and will be leaving the media company at the end of the year.

Anderson says: “I have absolutely loved the experience of leading this exceptional company over the past four years and it has been a privilege to do so.”

“When I joined MediaWorks back in October 2016, my focus was to bring stability to a company that had been through years of turmoil and to get all arms of the business into a position where they would be sustainable and competitive in their own right.”

“Fast forward to now and we have welcomed QMS into our family and alongside our radio business, they have come together into one building that allows collaboration across our brands. Things are also looking positive for the sale of TV and we hope to make an announcement in the coming weeks.”

“With MediaWorks well and truly on the path to a sustainable and profitable future, it’s time to look at the next phase of our business journey and it is time for a new leader with a fresh perspective to drive MediaWorks over the next five years and beyond.”

“I will remain with MediaWorks until the end of the year as we continue to navigate our way through the changes that we are currently undergoing.”

Chairman Jack Matthews says: “After four years of Michael’s leadership, MediaWorks is in a much better position both strategically and financially and Michael has been the driver of that change.”

“Supported by a talented executive team and an engaged staff, Michael has driven all areas of the business and as a result, MediaWorks is very well positioned for the future.”

“I and the Board would like to acknowledge and thank Michael for his huge contribution.  We will be sorry to see him go but he will leave behind an exciting business ready for the opportunities ahead.”
