Seven West Media CEO Tim Worner has resigned after six years running Australia’s leading television network. He’s replaced by James Warburton, once managing director of Ten.
“All parties agree now is the time for change,” chairman Kerry Stokes said in a statement. “[…] James has extensive experience in the industry with knowledge across media, advertising, sports administration, marketing and particularly sales. His passion and energy will reinvigorate the team. We look forward to the contribution he will make.”
As well as the Seven network, the company owns West Australian Newspapers and Pacific Magazines.
“Tim has been a tireless leader at Seven for more than two decades and has been chief executive officer for the past six years. All parties agree now is the time for change. We are fortunate that James was available to commence immediately,” added Stokes.
