APN names Peter Hunt as chairman
APN NEWS & Media named Peter Hunt as chairman following the resignation of Gavin O'Reilly in April. Mr Hunt, who will take up the post of chairman at the Australian and New Zealand-based company from early September, helped found corporate advisory firm Greenhill Caliburn.
"Peter is the ideal chairman (for) APN's next phase of growth. His expertise in successfully guiding companies through complex change is outstanding," deputy APN chairman Ted Harris said.
The board of APN, which is 29.5pc owned by Irish Independent-owner INM, had appointed Mr Harris as acting chairman until a new chair could be appointed.
