Rachel Antony has been elevated to CEO from her current position as director of production and development at Greenstone TV, a factual prodco in New Zealand, owned by CJZ Group.

Antony is replacing Richard Driver, who served as CEO for the past two-and-a-half years.

“Rachel has done an outstanding job since joining GS TV three years ago and is very well equipped to take on this new challenge. Rachel is an impressive operator and her strong track record across both TV and digital position her perfectly as CEO”, said Matt Campbell, CJZ Group CEO, in a statement.

Antony’s appointment is effective immediately.

Elsewhere, Driver will serve as NZ chairman after playing an integral role in changing the culture at Greenstone following the departure of previous management.

“We are eternally grateful to Richard for accepting the MD role some two-and-a-half years ago and steering GS TV through a very complex period for all media companies. We understand him wanting to spend more time with his family on the farm, his polo team and racing motorbikes. Richard has kindly agreed to stay on in the new advisory role as Chair”, said Campbell, in a statement.

Greenstone’s titles include Border Patrol, Motorway Patrol, Dog Squad, Highway Cops, Neighbours At War, amongst others.
