The SBS board of directors has announced the appointment of SBS chief financial officer James Taylor (pictured) to the role of acting SBS managing director.
The announcement follows the decision of Michael Ebeid to step down from the role from 1 October after seven and a half years’ service with SBS, to take up a new group executive role with Telstra.
Taylor joined SBS six years ago and leads SBS’s finance, corporate strategy, people & culture, legal, SBS media sales and commercial teams. He has over 18 years’ experience in media and telecommunications across corporate and public sector organisations in Australia and abroad, with expertise in corporate finance, human resources, operational leadership and corporate and digital strategies.
His appointment as acting managing director comes into effect from 2 October.
The recruitment process for the new managing director is underway.
