CEO Roundtable: Grant Blackley – Revisited
When we last spoke to Grant Blackley, he was about to take over the helm of SCA as their new CEO and Managing Director. In part one of our CEO Roundtable Revisited with Grant, we will talk about the recent SCA Full Year results – “Radio is a growing medium and I think it is undervalued.”
How does he balance the demands of keeping the shareholder and investors happy versus the staff, sales and the product side?
It has also been a year where SCA have invested some big money in marketing and talent. Some has paid off and some is still growing. Is Grant happy with the progress of 2Day FM and Rove and Sam on Breakfast? “Is that where we want it to sit? No!”
In Part Two of our CEO Roundtable Revisited with Grant Blackley, we discuss the Digital space, what it means and how does Grant define it? What will the recent Vevo and Authentic Entertainment acquisitions mean and what is his position on media law reform?
Does he expect to see a major shift in the ownership of media groups?
