SCA appoints new general managers for regional Queensland

Southern Cross Austereo has appointed Tim Davenport as general manager for Southern Queensland and  Ken Wood as general manager for Northern Queensland, effectively dividing the company’s regional structure.

Davenport, who was previously general manager of Queensland, will now handle Queensland’s  regional areas which includes the Gold Coast, Toowoomba, Sunshine Coast, Bundaberg, Hervey Bay and Maryborough.

Meanwhile, Wood, who previously held the role of North Queensland and NT general manager, will continue to look after the North, including Cairns, Mackay, Townsville, Rockhampton, Sunshine Coast, Gladstone, Toowoomba, Emerald, Mt Isa and the Northern Territory.

Both Wood and Davenport will report directly to SCA’s head of regional media, Rick Lenarcic. The new roles are effective immediately.

Lenarcic said SCA needs “on the ground”, “dedicated management”.

“With 27 radio stations and TV stations broadcasting the channel Nine signal across the breadth of regional Queensland, SCA continues to focus its revenue opportunities by ensuring our clients can reach their target audiences via our media assets,” Lenarcic said.

Davenport said Southern Queensland was one of the fastest growing regions in Australia.

“I’m excited to be working with great people, focussed on delivering great entertainment and results for our clients, agencies and partners across our suite of market-leading brands to bind those communities together,” he said.

Wood added: “I started my leadership career with SCA in Rockhampton and am excited to be back working with our team, our clients and the community in Central Queensland.”
