The Grant Broadcasters Board has recently announced several changes to its executive ranks of the family-owned company.
Grant Cameron will move up to become non-executive chairman for the company and Alison Cameron, (pictured) currently the chief operating officer, will assume the CEO role.
Dugald Cameron remains responsible for the family’s investment portfolio and is an executive member of the board.
Janet Cameron, Grant Broadcasters’ previous long-standing chairperson and recent OAM recipient, continues to be an active board member.
Grant Cameron stated at a recent management conference: “It has been a privilege to lead Grant Broadcasters and play a part in growing the company into one of Australia’s largest independent media owners with over 50 radio stations across Regional Australia. The time is now right for us to look to the future to ensure we continue delivering great local content and evolving successful commercial solutions for our clients.”
Recruitment for a new chief operating officer has commenced with Korn Ferry being appointed to aid the Grant Broadcasters board in filling this key management position.
“This is a critical role within our organisation. We are after someone who is familiar with creative content, commercial sales, digital capabilities as well as finance and engineering. Most importantly we are after a leader who can help grow and develop our 700+ employees across Regional Australia,” said Alison Cameron.
The management changes will be finalised when the new COO has been appointed and a thorough and extensive transition period has been completed.
Grant Broadcasting has interests in 51 regional radio stations, it owns a sales representation company (TRSN) representing a further 70 independent radio networks and stations, publishes several local lifestyle magazines and has a significant online presence in local markets.
