ARN’s chief marketing officer Anthony Xydis to exit

Australian Radio Network (ARN) has revealed its chief marketing officer, Anthony Xydis, will be leaving the business after seven years.

The radio business announced the news today, saying the decision was a mutual one.

Xydis said of his departure that he would miss working with the team and was proud of his achievements to date.

“I’ve had an incredible seven years at ARN. I’ve worked with some wonderful people across the business, including our great business partners. I am very proud of all the achievements I’ve been able to contribute to as part of the executive team and the amazing brand and marketing team,” said Xydis.

“In these unprecedented times, the power of radio and audio to entertain, inform and connect has never been more important and I look forward to hearing more of the team’s excellent work moving forward.”

Mumbrella understands Xydis does not currently have another role lined up.

ARN CEO Ciaran Davis said Xydis had been an important member of the team and worked on some key projects for ARN.

“Anthony has been a valued member of the executive team. In his seven years at ARN he has led the brand, marketing and corporate communications strategy for a number of pivotal moments for the business including the launch of Sydney’s KIIS 1065 with Kyle & Jackie O, the rebrand of WSFM in Sydney, launch of The Christian O’Connell Breakfast Show in Melbourne and the rollout of the KIIS Network and iHeartRadio across Australia. We all wish him the very best in his future endeavours.”

Xydis began with ARN in early 2013 as a marketing consultant, before moving to the role of national marketing director at the end of that year. He came chief marketing officer three years ago.

Prior to his time with ARN, Xydis was the international marketing and brand director for Clear Channel across Europe, Asia Pacific and Latin America and, previously, was marketing director of Adshel Australia and New Zealand.
