Former Macquarie boss joins ABC
The ABC have announced changes today to its senior executive ranks.
Former CEO of the Macquarie Radio Network Angela Clark has been appointed to as the ABC's 'Director of Innovation'. Since leaving Macquarie in 2009, Clark has been CEO of streetcorner.com.au.
She commented – “It is my view that the ABC is the most innovative media organisation in Australia, both in the nature of the content it produces and in how it delivers that content. This role carries with it a great sense of responsibility as innovation is something that organisations must do every day, as second nature.
I look forward to working with the ABC to ensure more opportunities for Australians to engage, learn, laugh and explore. There couldn’t be a more exciting time to be joining the ABC.”
ABC Managing Director Mark Scott said – "Angela is a real industry pioneer, firstly in bringing a revolution to the outdoor advertising industry with JC Decaux inAustralia, then as CEO with Macquarie Radio Network, and most recently as Founder and Director of Streetcorner.com.au & Everymap.com.au"
Also announced today was the appointment of former Four Corners Executive Producer Bruce Belsham, as Head of Current Affairs in the ABC's News Division.
