Foxtel has been hit by another major executive exit as long-time general manager of advertising sales and brand partnerships, Andrew Mulready, departs the business.

His exit follows CMO Andy Lark's departure in October and Foxtel's head of sport marketer Adam Ballesty's resigation last month.

Lark had been at the pay-TV business for 10 months and Ballesty six months.

Mulready joined the business on 2009, moving across from Nine where he had headed up the Sydney sales team.

Foxtel declined to comment further on the news and were unable to confirm if there was an immediate replacement or any changes being made to the role.

“I’m immensely proud of the growth and commercial outcomes my team and I have achieved across the last 10 years," Mulready said.

"Premium revenues are now more than 10 times what they were at the outset and we have forged many successful and enduring brand partnerships across this period.

“Foxtel is a company I have huge passion and love for. I leave with a sense of pride and gratitude and am excited about future opportunities and what lies ahead in the next stage of my career."

Foxtel’s executive director of television Brian Walsh described Mulready as "an outstanding and loyal executive and company advocate".

"He has led by example and played a key role in mentoring many careers and nurturing rising talent across the whole division," Walsh said.

The next opportunity now awaits and wherever he lands, I know Andrew will embrace the new frontier with the same vigour and commitment he has given Foxtel.”
