Seven’s head of corporate affairs, Stephen Browning, resigns

Seven’s head of corporate affairs, Stephen Browning, has resigned from the company after just under two years in the role.

Browning joined Seven in January 2018 after 10 months as a consultant with Commonwealth Bank of Australia. Prior to that he spent over 10 years with News Corp in various roles, departing the business as head of corporate affairs.

Browning’s departure is understood to be unrelated to the recent leadership changes which saw long-time CEO Tim Worner leave to be replaced by James Warburton. Warburton has already begun major staffing changes at Seven, with head of sport Saul Shtein leaving the business last month.

In a statement, Browning said he enjoyed his time with Seven and is sad to be leaving the team, but felt it was time to try something new. He will be relocating to Melbourne to become the head of external affairs at explosives company Orica.

“I’ve thoroughly enjoyed my time at Seven – it’s been a privilege to work alongside such a talented and friendly team. But for me it’s time to try my hand at something completely different,” said Browning.

“There are too many people to call out individually, but I do want to particularly thank Kerry and Ryan Stokes and Tim Worner for giving me the opportunity.

“I’m sorry I won’t be part of the next exciting chapter as part of James’ team, but I shall be cheering on from the sidelines.”
