Grant Broadcasters promotes Alison Cameron to CEO in senior management reshuffle

Grant Broadcasters is on the hunt for a new chief operating officer after the family company promoted incumbent Alison Cameron to become CEO.

In a series of moves the regional radio network claims will keep the company competitive and relevant, former CEO Grant Cameron will become non-executive chairman.

Announcing the move, Grant Cameron said: “It has been a privilege to lead Grant Broadcasters and play a part in growing the company into one of Australia’s largest independent media owners with over 50 radio stations across regional Australia. The time is now right for us to look to the future to ensure we continue delivering great local content and evolving successful commercial solutions for our clients.”

Matriarch of the family, Janet Cameron, will continue to be an active board member. She was awarded an Order of Australia for services to broadcast media in this year’s Australia Day awards.

Recruitment firm Korn Ferry has been appointed to lead the chief operating officer search for the company, which owns 51 regional radio stations and represents another 71 through its TSRN media representation business.

“This is a critical role within our organisation,” said incoming CEO Alison Cameron about the search for a chief operating officer. “We are after someone who is familiar with creative content, commercial sales, digital capabilities as well as finance and engineering. Most importantly we are after a leader who can help grow and develop our 700+ employees across regional Australia.”
