ASTRA CEO quits
"After four years it’s time for change," says Andrew Maiden.
Andrew Maiden CEO of Subscription TV group ASTRA has resigned after four years in the role.
The Australian reports the mutually-agreed exit took effect last week.
In his role Maiden has worked on issues surrounding sector changes, content & production, piracy, the anti-siphoning list, media reform, ASTRA Conference and the ASTRA Awards.
“I love the industry and have been impressed with the quality of its leaders,” he said. “The role bridged my background in business, media and politics, so has been enormous fun. But after four years it’s time for change”.
He replaced Petra Buchanan in March 2013, following 12 years with Telstra.
Both ASTRA and Free TV Australia are now without formal CEOs after Brett Savill departed the latter in February.
