Gill Stewart leaves The Radio Bureau

Gill Stewart has resigned as General Manager of The Radio Bureau, the organisation that represents New Zealand’s commercial radio industry.

TRB shareholders, MediaWorks and NZME, thanked Gill for her services to the radio industry.

MediaWorks CEO, Mark Weldon and NZME CEO, Jane Hastings paid tribute to Gill Stewart in a joint statement:

“On behalf of NZME and MediaWorks, we thank Gill for her service to TRB and the wider radio industry.  TRB has played an important role in ensuring the medium continues to deliver outstanding value to the industry and our customers.  Gill has led this business and achieved tremendous success year on year.  On a personal note, we have both enjoyed working with Gill and wish her well for the future.”

Gill Stewart says:  “It has been a privilege and pleasure leading The Radio Bureau.  I am very proud of my team, and what we have achieved together on behalf of the shareholders and stakeholders. I am looking forward to the opportunity of new challenges ahead, both personally and professionally.  I would also like to warmly acknowledge and thank NZME and MediaWorks, the Board and the independent radio stations for their support.”

The Radio Bureau will announce a replacement in the near future.

TRB conducts marketing for the radio medium, and provides a complete and comprehensive single-source of services for advertising agencies – from analysing research data and developing radio strategies to planning and booking campaigns and sales promotions across on-air, online, on mobile, and on the street radio platforms.

In other recent NZ news, the first radio survey for 2015 was cancelled and NZME has commissioned its own survey to replace it.
