News Corp Australia has announced three new appointments to its Queensland arm, including the former managing director of Starcom Queensland Mark Power.
Mr Power, who has been appointed director of data and strategy, is joined by former chief financial officer of Woolworths’ Home Timber and Hardware division Kym Warner and Jeanna Manifold, a former sales director for MCM Media and Australian Radio Network.
Ms Warner has been appointed News Corp Queensland’s general manager for finance, and Ms Manifold as director of advertising agencies.
News Corp Queensland state director Sean Ryan said the hirings would drive revenue and profitability and would bring “firepower” and experience to the company’s operations.
“Mark is one of the best strategic thinkers I’ve come across; Kym is an experienced and talented finance executive, and Jeanna was a star when leading ARN’s sales team. I have no doubt they all will be a great success with us,” he said.
Ms Manifold has already begun her new role, while Mr Power and Ms Warner will commence in their new positions on Monday, July 28.
