MCN has lost its integration and content partnerships national director Elizabeth (Libby) Minogue to REA Group, only a month after the announcement of another MCN stalwart, Murray Love, making his exit to Quantium.
Minogue has been appointed executive general manager for REA's media and property related services business. She takes up her new post in mid-December.
“We are delighted to have someone of Libby’s calibre on our team. Her experience in this field is unparalleled and we are looking forward to her contribution as our business evolves to meet changing market dynamics," said REA Group CEO Tracey Fellows.
Minogue admits she resigned from MCN with difficulty, but is looking forward to her new role.
"The opportunity to lead the media and property related services business - including having responsibility for product design and delivery, sales and marketing - will allow me to deliver new media strategies, providing value to REA Group’s highly engaged consumers. It is an incredible business and I’m excited to be part of it," said Minogue.
Minogue had been with MCN for 12 years, and MCN CEO Anthony Fitzgerald spoke warmly of her abilities.
“It goes without saying, we are sad to lose Libby from our team. We thank her for the enormous value she has added over the past decade and wish her great success in her new role with REA Group,” said Fitzgerald.
“Libby is a great leader and an inspiration to those who have worked with her. MCN would not be where it is today, without her passion, talent and leadership," he added.
Minogue had worked in a number of roles at the Foxtel-FOX SPORTS joint venture, including group account manager and head of channel management and integrated sales. She had also worked at Fox Cable Networks in the United States.
MCN has confirmed it will announce a replacement for the departing Minogue in the coming months.
