New roles for Simpson and Thomas at SCA

Southern Cross Austereo (SCA) has announced Jeremy Simpson as Sydney General Manager and he will immediately assume the responsibility of running 2Day FM and Triple M.
Transitioning from his role as SCA’s National Sales Director, Simpson brings enormous experience to the key Sydney market having been a critical part of the company for over a decade in a number of prominent sales positions spanning radio and television assets.
Prior to the Southern Cross Media and Austereo merge, Simpson spent 10 years with Southern Cross Media, joining the company in 2002 and leading the radio and TV sales teams nationally. He has robust experience in managing media sales and teams.
SCA Sydney General Manager, Jeremy Simpson said, “I am very excited about the opportunity to take on the General Manager role for Southern Cross Austereo in Sydney. There already exists an excellent culture of openness and cooperation across the company as well as a burning desire to develop the best possible content and ideas by investing in the best talent in the business - both on air and off air. The Sydney leadership team has done an outstanding job of producing media firsts in entertainment and I am thrilled to be part of this group going forward.”
In-line with this move, Cathy Thomas (left) is appointed National Sales Director for SCA. Currently Director of Radio Sales, Thomas has been with the business for 18 years and will now lead SCA’s sales strategy for metro and regional radio and television.
Thomas’ time with the company have seen her spend four years heading up National Sales prior to the merge then fronting SCA’s National Radio Sales function. She has been a leading force in radio sales with a strong focus on delivering firsts for clients across multiple platforms thanks to unique ideas and true national network leadership.
Southern Cross Austereo appointments for Sydney General Manager and National Sales Director are effective immediately.
SCA Chief Executive Officer Rhys Holleran said, “These announcements strengthen what is already an incredibly talented management team and further highlight the benefits of integrating two successful media companies.”
