Richardson replaces Katrina Southon who was promoted to senior vice president and managing director, MTV Networks in February.

She said of Richardson’s appointment: “It’s always exciting when an Australian can make a big impression overseas, but it’s even more exciting when we welcome them home to lead our longest-established business. Ben is a passionate kids advocate and I’m delighted that he’ll be taking on the general manager’s role.”
