HT&E has appointed Angela Ewers as its first chief people officer.

In her new role, Ewers will lead both HT&E and ARN’s people and culture function to support growth and the work environment.

“This newly created role of Chief People Officer is pivotal in HT&E’s strategy to increase performance and improve capability, as we continue our transition as Australia’s leading radio and digital audio provider,” says HT&E CEO Ciaran Davis.

“Angela will bring her expertise, innovation and dynamic approach to bolster ARN’s position as a high performing, engaged, innovative and inclusive business.”

Ewers steps into the newly-created role from James Hardie Building Products, where she worked as its people and performance director across the Asia Pacific region. She has also previously worked at Lion across various roles, Caltex Australia Petroleum, and Yum! Restaurants International.

“I’m excited to join HT&E and be part of its ongoing growth and the transformation of the ARN business,” Ewers says.
“It’s great to be coming into the business at a time where there is a focus on building a future-proofed People & Culture strategy and I’m really looking forward to working with the Executive Leadership Team and business leaders to bring this to life.”

Earlier this year, HT&E’s radio network ARN restructured its agency sales team at the same time is was dealing with the downturn of the pandemic.
