Foxtel chief marketing officer David Morgan has parted company with the Pay-TV network after five months in the role, AdNews can exclusively reveal.
Morgan left his role last Friday and Foxtel is currently recruiting for a replacement. It is not known if Morgan has a new position lined up elsewhere. At the time of writing, AdNews was unable to contact Morgan.
Director of policy and corporate affairs at Foxtel, Adam Suckling, confirmed Morgan's departure and issued a brief statement to AdNews.
"Foxtel can confirm that David Morgan has left the role of Chief Marketing Officer. David resigned from the role and Foxtel is currently recruiting a replacement".
Morgan joined Foxtel from News Limited following a brief spell at the Australian newspaper group. His time at News Limited lasted three months; on his first day Morgan found out the role no longer existed amid a restructure. Morgan left in March of this year to join Foxtel, in which News Limited-owner News Corporation owns a 25% stake.
Morgan is better known as the architect of Bankwest’s “Happy Banking” repositioning, which he launched as chief marketing officer for the retail division.
Morgan also oversaw a significant increase in the HBOS-owned bank's marketing spend as it opened 160 new branches in NSW, Queensland, Victoria and South Australia.
