SBS Managing Director Shaun Brown has agreed to delay his retirement plans at Board request to oversee the initial phase of a new strategic plan, the public broadcaster announced today.
“The Board is delighted that Shaun has agreed to extend his contract into the next financial year,” the SBS Chairman, Joe Skrzynski said.
“He has made a most valuable contribution in leading the organisation through what has been a very complex and difficult strategic review process. Delaying his departure will ensure effective implementation of any changes decided upon without the organisation losing momentum, as well as seeing through the business plan for this financial year.”
Mr Brown was due to retire in April 2011. He will now stay on until 8 July, 2011.
Mr Skrzynski said the search for a new Managing Director would be held on a world-wide basis and the Board would begin discussing its recruitment plans in the near future.
