New magazine leader

Industry body Magazine Networks has announced a new chairman. He is Gereurd Roberts, the chief executive of Pacific Magazines.

Gereurd Roberts takes over the chairmanship from Peter Zavecz, who recently re-joined News Corp Australia in Melbourne.

Magazine Networks membership includes Bauer Media, NewsLifeMedia and Pacific Magazines. It recently changed its name from the Magazines Publishers’ Association to emphasise how magazines were multi-platform brands.

Mr Roberts has nearly two decades of publishing experience, including roles at Guardian News and Media, ACP Magazines (now Bauer Media) and as an editor, publisher and Commercial Director prior to his most recent role at Pacific Magazines.
