Seven’s Bridget Fair Appointed CEO of Free TV
Seven West Media has announced Ms Bridget Fair, Group Chief – Corporate and Regulatory Affairs, will resign from the group to become Chief Executive Officer of Free TV, effective 1 February 2018.
Chairman of Seven West Media, Mr Kerry Stokes, said, “While we are sad to see Bridget leave us, we are delighted we will be able to continue to work with her in the very important role she is taking on at Free TV.
“I have enjoyed watching Bridget’s career evolve over the last 17 years with Seven to become the best regulatory executive in the country, with the recent media reforms a testament to her exceptional work”, he added.
Chief Executive Officer of Seven West Media, Mr Tim Worner, said “Bridget has been an outstanding member of our executive team and a passionate advocate for our company, not just in Canberra, but all over the country.
“I thank her for her unstinting dedication to our cause and look forward to continuing to work with her in her new role in which she will undoubtedly also excel. I feel certain many politicians and staffers in Canberra will have breathed a little easier once they learnt of Bridget’s resignation. Only to take that breath sharply back again once they realised that her legendary lobbying and negotiating skills were not being lost to free to air television”, he added.
Ms Fair said: “I have had an amazing career with Seven over the past 17 years and have had the chance to work with some of the best in the business. I am very grateful for the rewarding roles and opportunities I have been given during my time here and I am particularly pleased to be able to maintain a connection with Seven in my new role at FreeTV.”
Ms Fair was appointed to the role of Group Chief – Corporate and Regulatory Affairs in February 2013 and was previously Head of Regulatory and Business Affairs with the Seven Network. Ms Fair has over 20 years experience in government relations, business strategy, corporate affairs and commercial negotiation. She joined Seven in 2000 and has previously held positions as General Counsel for SBS and legal counsel for the ABC as well as in private legal practice. Ms Fair holds Board positions at Freeview Australia Limited, Free TV Australia Limited and OzTAM Pty Ltd and is a former Chairman of Screenrights.
