Southern Cross Austereo’s Nick Scott has announced he will be stepping away from his fulltime role as General Manager of the Gold Coast’s Sea FM, Gold FM and TV business.

Nick’s last day as General Manager will be 1st July 2016, after which he will continue on in a part time capacity through to December 2016, assisting with overseeing key client and community relationships with SCA in the region.

Nick (left) has been a prominent figure on the Gold Coast since his arrival in 1981.

In his time in the media Nick has progressed through many key roles from National Sales Director, Group General Manager, and General Manager of the Gold Coast over two stints for a total of 14 years.

Nick’s commitment to the industry has included board seats with Commercial Radio Australia, The Radio Marketing Bureau, The Regional Radio Bureau as well as the Regional and Research committees at CRA.

In his past four years as General Manager on the Gold Coast, Nick has steered the business through a number of changes, including returning Sea FM and Gold FM to their rightful #1 & #2 positions.

QLD Regional General Manager Tim Davenport said:

“Nick has been a wonderful contributor to our company, the industry and the community. His leadership skills, business acumen and popularity have set a very high standard to maintain. I thank The Great Man for his outstanding contribution, and wish him & his wife Irene only the best as he transitions into his new role in August after a short break.”

Nick Scott said:

“Looking back over the past four years, I’m proud to have led the Gold Coast team to our winning position. Looking forward, I feel confident that the formula we’ve created will continue to bring success.”

A further announcement will follow soon regarding Nick’s successor. 

Meantime SCA has also announced that Richard Barker (left) has resigned from his position as General Manager, Brisbane. Richard will be taking up the role of CEO of the Queensland Rugby Union.

Announcing his departure Grant Blackley, CEO of SCA said “Richard’s dedication to SCA has been second to none. I would like to thank Richard for his long and outstanding leadership. We all wish him the best at the Queensland Rugby Union.”

Richard said, “I’ve had the privilege to work closely with a talented and winning team at SCA and I wish everyone at SCA all the success in the future. Outside of my family, I have two passions in life –Radio and Rugby. After spending the 30 years of my working career on the first, I have now been given the unique opportunity to pursue the second.”

SCA will recruit for a new General Manager for Brisbane.
