Mark Hollands is departing NewsMediaWorks where he has been CEO for nearly four years.
On Hollands’ time with NewsMediaWorks, organisation chairman Michael Miller said: “The board wishes to thank Mark for his important contribution to NewsMediaWorks as well as the wider news media sector. The industry body will continue to focus on helping create operational efficiencies for the benefit of all publisher members.”
Mark Hollands commented: “I’d like to thank my colleagues, who continue to make an important and enthusiastic contribution to our industry. They share my love of this industry and respect for those who work so hard to deliver journalism to our nation every day. It has been a pleasure to work with them. The time is right to move on, however, as I have a number of personal interests in Australia and overseas that I wish to pursue.”
Hollands will depart the organisation on February 28.
The board will conduct a search for a new CEO to continue the organisation’s work in areas such as industry cooperation.
Hollands is also a crime novelist and the author of “Amplify: A Billy Lime Thriller”. The author has promised his readers a new novel in the series will be published this year.
