MediaWorks finalises its executive team for 2016, appoints chief commercial officer, head of revenue and head of integration

MediaWorks has announced via a release the appointment of Mark David as chief commercial officer (centre), a position that will see him oversee the commercial remit of the group. This appointment follows on from last year's unexpected departure of head of revenue Liz Fraser to Air New Zealand, which left an empty seat around the executive table at the media company. In addition to announcing the appointment of David, Weldon also comfirmed that Paul Hancox (previously commercial director – pictured right) has shifted into the vacant group head of revenue role and that Alana O'Neill (with MediaWorks since 2013 – pictured left) has taken a new role as head of the newly merged integration and branded content areas.

In a joint statement released earlier today, Fairfax Media, MediaWorks, NZME and TVNZ announced the launch of a new local advertising exchange service called the Kiwi Premium Advertising Exchange (KPEX), which will provide advertisers access to premium advertising inventory across each of the publishers' online properties. So will this give the local players the scale to compete with Facebook and Google's respective ad exchanges?
