Starcom MediaVest Group Executive Vice President Paul Maher has today been named TVNZ's Head of Sales and Marketing.
TVNZ Chief Executive Rick Ellis said Mr Maher would start in the role, which was created in last month's restructuring of the company's executive team, in August.
"Paul has enjoyed an outstanding international career with Starcom MediaVest Group, one of the world's largest media and communication companies. As well as his current role, he has been CEO North Asia, CEO New Zealand, CEO Canada and Managing Director/Chief Operating Officer China and Hong Kong," Mr Ellis said.
Maher has had a long history with the company having been General Manager TVNZ Agency Sales some ten years ago and being involved in late 2006 in helping develop the company's strategic plan, "Inspiring New Zealanders On Every Screen".
"Paul brings a wealth of experience in marketing, sales, television, advertising and the media generally and, importantly, in dealing with customers and clients both locally and internationally.
"His appointment will be valuable to TVNZ in its transition from being a traditional analogue broadcaster into being New Zealand's leading digital television and media company."
