CEO of Seven West Media Tim Worner will now also sit on the Seven West Media board as managing director, while former Victorian premier Jeffrey Kennett will sit on the board as a non-executive director.

Seven made the announcement today to the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX), along with the announcement of non-executive directors Sheila McGregor, Jeffrey Kennett, and Michael Malone.

The shake-up comes after a 12 months where Graeme John, Doug Flynn, and former Seven Group Holdings CEO Don Voelte departed.

Seven West chairman Kerry Stokes said he hoped the new board would reinvigorate the company.

“We are looking forward to Tim, Sheila, Jeff and Michael joining John Alexander, Michelle Deaker, Peter Gammell, Ryan Stokes and David Evans on a strong, energised board,” Stokes said.

“The past 12 months has seen our businesses build on their leadership. Much has been done to put in place the structures that will allow us to manage our costs, drive greater efficiencies and drive home our leadership in the creation of content that Australians are seeking.

“More is to be done as Seven West Media moves to the next level in its development as a leading integrated media company across broadcast television, publishing and online and new forms of content delivery.”
