Endemol Australia CEO Janeen Faithfull (pictured) will leave the company when it merges with Shine Australia later in the year.
Endemol, Shine Group and Core Media merged late last year, but the new entity has yet to formalize leadership for its Australian business. Details about a structure, leadership and start date will be announced in the months ahead following an ongoing consultative process helmed by Martha Brass, co-CEO of international operations for Endemol Shine Group.
In a statement, Faithfull said she has decided to leave to “pursue new opportunities.” She will continue in the position until the merger takes place.
“I’m incredibly proud of our talented and committed team and all we have achieved together as Endemol Australia,” she said. “I have no doubt that joining forces with Shine Australia later in the year will lead to even greater things and I wish all those involved continued successes.”
Faithfull became the CEO of Endemol-owned Southern Star in 2012. The company later rebranded as Endemol Australia. Prior to that, she was the head of content and rights management for Australian broadcaster Seven Network.
