Peter Harvie confirms retirement from SCA board
Commercial Radio Hall of Fame inductee Peter Harvie has retired as a director of SCA, according to a statement issued to the ASX today.
Starting as a radio writer with Clemenger Melbourne in 1966, Harvie became MD of a restructured Clemenger Harvie in 1974.
He left Clemenger Harvie in 1993 to become managing director of the Triple M Network and then executive chairman of Austereo Group Limited in 2001.
In 2011, he steered Austereo through the merger with Southern Cross Broadcasting to create Southern Cross Austereo, now one of Australia’s largest media companies.
SCA Chairman Peter Bush said, “SCA has benefited greatly from Peter’s 50 years’ experience in the advertising, marketing and media industries.”
He added: “He has been an informed and forthright contributor to Board deliberations. Because of his deep background with the business, Peter is well-liked and respected by executives throughout the business who have worked with him for many years. Everyone at SCA wishes him well for his future endeavours.”
SCA board intends to appoint a new non-executive director and is expected to make that announcement “in due course”.
