Seven West Media CEO Tim Worner has announced that acting chief executive officer of Seven West Media WA, Maryna Fewster, has been appointed to the role permanently.
Fewster moved into the acting CEO role last May after a short stint at the top by John Driscoll, who had in turn replaced Chris Wharton.
As CEO, Fewster is responsible for SWM’s WA operations including The West Australian newspaper, The Sunday Times, thewest.com.au, perthnow.com.au, nine radio stations, 20 regional newspapers and Channel Seven Perth, as well as SWM’s holding in the Community Newspaper Group, a joint venture with News Corp Australia.
Fewster joined SWM in April 2017 as chief operating officer (WA) and has been acting CEO for the past month. Prior to that she worked at iiNet for over a decade as GM corporate services, chief customer officer and chief operating officer.
