Southern Cross Austereo appoints Jeremy Simpson as Sydney GM

Southern Cross Austereo has found a replacement in Adam Lang, former Sydney general manager who moved to Fairfax Radio in December 2011.

Jeremy Simpson, former national sales director for Southern Cross Austereo will be the company’s Sydney GM.

Prior to the merger of Southern Cross Media and Austereo last year, Simpson had been with the Southern Cross Media since 2002 leading radio and TV sales.

As a result of Simpson’s move, Cathy Thomas has been appointed national sales director for SCA. Currently director of radio sales, Thomas has been with the business for 18 years and will now lead sales strategy for metro and regional radio and TV.

Simpson said in a statement: “There already exists an excellent culture of openness and cooperation across the company as well as a burning desire to develop the best possible content and ideas by investing in the best talent in the business – both on air and off air. The Sydney leadership team has done an outstanding job of producing media firsts in entertainment and I am thrilled to be part of this group going forward.”

SCA CEO Rhys Holleran said: “These announcements strengthen what is already an incredibly talented management team and further highlight the benefits of integrating two successful media companies.”
