Mediacorp CEO Shaun Seow Steps Down

Mediacorp-Singapore recently announced that its CEO, Shaun Seow, will be leaving the organisation to join its parent company, Temasek. The board of Mediacorp will commence a search for Mr Seow’s successor. Mr Seow will continue with his duties as CEO and assist in the transition until the 30th of September, 2017.

Shaun Seow was appointed to his current role in July 2011 after holding various leadership roles across the company’s TV, radio, print and digital businesses. He was part of the core team that started Channel NewsAsia in 1999. As CEO, Mr Seow has reshaped Mediacorp in the face of audiences and advertising dollars shifting to digital platforms. He steered the launch and growth of Toggle and Mediacorp’s digital-first news, focusing on user experience and leveraging social media to drive engagement.

Under his leadership, the company’s Digital Group was started to accelerate audience growth and monetisation. A consumer insights and analytics unit was also established to drive data-based decisions in product development and revenue generation. Beyond Singapore, Mediacorp has invested in a digital publisher in Indonesia, where digital adoption is taking off exponentially.

Mr Seow will be joining Temasek’s Telecom, Media and Technology investment team, which includes Mediacorp in its portfolio.(C+T Mag)
