Former HT&E CRO Tony Kendall has joined Australian Community Media (ACM) to conduct a review of the business, following its acquisition by Antony Catalano.

Kendall, who left the HT&E business in January as part of a round of redundancies, will lead a review of all aspects of ACM’s sales operations across national, local and digital.

Allen Williams, ACM MD, says the aim of Kendall’s review is to “sharpen and build on” the business’ capabilities in sales by examining operations, structure, skills and resourcing.

“To deliver outstanding results for our business we must first deliver outstanding results for our customers,” Williams says.

“To do that, we need integrated and high-performing sales teams. Tony’s wide connections and extensive knowledge of the advertising and marketing industry in Australia will be an invaluable addition to our business.”

ACM was purchased by former Domain boss Antony Catalano in April and includes more than 160 news titles across online and print, including The Canberra Times, Newcastle Herald and The Courier.
