Georgina Brujic to leave Pacific+ in July

Managing director of Pacific+ Georgina Brujic will leave Pacific Magazines at the end of July.

The announcement:

Georgina Brujic, Managing Director of Pacific+, will leave Pacific Magazines at the end of July after 17 years with the company.

During her time with the business Brujic has held a diverse range of senior executive positions, often concurrently. Aside from her most recent role at Pacific+ – the custom division that evolved from Text Media and then Text Pacific – she has been a member of the Pacific Magazines executive team; Managing Director of Pacific Magazines New Zealand; and Pacific Magazines Innovations Group.

She has also led the business in driving change and new revenue initiatives.

Peter Zavecz, Director of Magazines at Pacific Magazines, said: ‘’There is no doubt that Georgina is a real force in magazines in this country. I know that all of us around the executive table will miss her unique insights and the honest passion that she brings. Her results truly do speak for themselves, and the legacy she leaves is definitely one of innovation and of pushing for the very best that we can do.’’

Brujic commented: ‘’It is with not a small amount of emotion that I leave Pacific Magazines and particularly my ‘family’ at Pacific+. I am extremely proud of our people and what we have been able to achieve together over the years, often in the face of significant industry challenges.

‘’About 12 months ago I began the process of strategically handing over the management reins to Helen Morassut. Now Helen is in a great position to take Pacific+ to the next level, and with the support of our  top team I feel confident of her success in guiding the Pacific+ ship forward.’’

Morassut has worked at Pacific+ for the last five years, most recently as Publisher. She will now report directly to Zavecz.

Brujic added: ‘’More than a decade ago a small group of us were talking about how quality content can work hard for a brand’s positioning. Today this ideology has real form. I hope my own contribution has been a part of making this big future a reality.

“I now feel that the time is right for me to move on to my next challenge. Everyone needs to evolve and with all the re-engineering of business structures I have done across my career it would be hypocritical of me to not acknowledge when it is my own time too.’’
