SCA’s Creina Chapman appointed chief executive at ACMA

Former Assistant Editor

Southern Cross Austereo‘s head of regulatory affairs and corporate communications Creina Chapman has been named as chief executive at the Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA).

Chapman has previously worked in senior roles at Nine Network, Publishing & Broadcast Limited and News Corp, and in advisory roles for Joe Hockey and Tony Abbott.

She then joined SCA in 2015 and is set to wrap up her time there on May 18.

“Creina has been an outstanding executive and has made a significant contribution to SCA and the broader media industry in a number of areas including her concerted effort in the successful negotiation of the Media Reform Bill last year,” said SCA chief executive officer Grant Blackley in a statement.

“While we are sorry to lose Creina we recognise this leadership role is an outstanding opportunity for someone with Creina’s long experience to make a difference in such an important area of public policy with such a vital organisation.

“Creina will leave with our best wishes and support.”

In her time at SCA she served as a rep on the boards of CRA, Free TV, Regional Television Audience Measurement and Regional Broadcasting Australia Holdings, and her new appointment will also see Chapman serve as ACMA deputy chair.

Chapman will begin a five-year term at the ACMA on June 11 this year.
