Seven CEO James Warburton leaving network earlier than planned

The chief executive of the Seven West Media, James Warburton, is leaving the troubled media company more than two months earlier than expected.

“Current managing director and chief executive officer, James Warburton, will finish at SWM today, 18 April 2024, with Jeff Howard commencing in the role on 19 April 2024,” a statement to the ASX said.

Mr Howard, the company’s chief financial officer, was announced as Mr Warburton’s successor last December and had been due to take up the role on June 30.
