With over 15 years’ experience in digital news media including Sky News Australia, News Corp and SBS, Bergin is set to join Telum in March.

Telum Media CEO Michael Webster said: “We are delighted to have found someone in John who shares our passion for journalism and media. John brings the skills and experience to lead our expanding Australia and New Zealand media and PR news and information teams.”

On his appointment, Bergin commented: “Telum has become the go-to reference for journalists and PRs in Australia and New Zealand. I’m thrilled to be joining the fantastic team at Telum to continue to grow the business here.”

Bergin will work alongside Tim Weller, revenue head, Australia & New Zealand, and will lead a team including Rhian Deutrom, country team lead, Australia & New Zealand, and Reuben Aitchison, who runs Telum’s PR News teams across Australia and New Zealand.
