NewsMediaWorks has announced the resignation of chief executive officer Mark Hollands after almost four years with the organisation.
Under Hollands’ leadership, NewsMediaWorks has undertaken a series of initiatives to support Australia’s leading news media publishers and communicate the sector’s value proposition to advertisers.
These include the 2013 launch of the cross-platform readership metric emma (Enhanced Media Metrics Australia), rebranding the organisation to reflect the multi-platform nature of today’s news media publishers, and implementing the News Media Index, which reports whole of industry advertising revenue.
On Hollands’ time with NewsMediaWorks Chairman Michael Miller said: “The board wishes to thank Mark for his important contribution to NewsMediaWorks as well as the wider news media sector. The industry body will continue to focus on helping create operational efficiencies for the benefit of all publisher members.”
Mark Hollands commented: “I’d like to thank my colleagues, who continue to make an important and enthusiastic contribution to our industry. They share my love of this industry and respect for those who work so hard to deliver journalism to our nation every day. It has been a pleasure to work with them. The time is right to move on, however, as I have a number of personal interests in Australia and overseas that I wish to pursue.”
Hollands will depart the organisation on February 28.
The board will conduct a search for a new CEO to continue the organisation’s work in areas such as industry co-operation.
