Seven West Media beefs up human resources department with appointment of Katie McGrath

Seven West Media has appointed Enero global human resources director Katie McGrath as group executive of human resources.

McGrath will join the senior executive team and report to SWM CEO Tim Worner.

She joins Seven after seven years with advertising parent company the Enero Group, of which the last four and a half years she was group HR director. Before that she was the human resources director for Enero ad agency BMF.

McGrath will lead human resources across SWM’s businesses, including the Seven Network, Pacific Magazines, the company’s expanding portfolio of digital businesses and ventures, and Seven West Media WA which includes The West Australian and The Sunday Times.

Commenting on her appointment, Tim Worner, CEO, Seven West Media, said: “Katie has an exceptional track record in all aspects of people strategy and leadership. She will lead the development of the most valuable resource we have at Seven West Media, our people.”

For Seven the appointment follows on from its own HR nightmare with former employee Amber Harrison going to the media to expose details of her affair with Worner after two years of negotiations with the network broke down.
