De Ceglie thanked the business for its support.

“I’m so appreciative for the opportunity to lead The West Australian, The Sunday Times, Perth Now and our 19 regional and 12 community newspapers.

“2019 has been a big year that has seen the West Australian Newspapers do everything from hold the first-ever federal election leaders’ debate in WA, to the successful launch of digital subscriptions on I’m confident that 2020 will be even bigger and we’re primed to capitalise on what has been a year of transformation and integration,” he said.
