Communicorp Group, the company that owns radio stations such as Newstalk and Today FM, has appointed former Orion Media boss Adrian Serle as its new chief executive.

Mr Serle replaces Gervaise Slowey who is stepping down from the company after four years at the helm.

Commenting on her decision Ms Slowey, who will remain as CEO until the end of the year, said her time at the firm had come to a natural end.

“Communicorp is made up of a strong dynamic team of incredibly brilliant people across all the businesses and functions who have been truly inspirational to work with. I would like to thank Lucy Gaffney, the board and the management team for the opportunity and support over the years and I wish them every success as they embark on the next phase.”

The firm’s chairman Lucy Gaffney thanked Ms Slowey for her time at the business.

“She has been a great chief executive and I would like to wish her the very best in her future career. I am very happy that we have found an excellent successor to Gervaise and I can confirm that Adrian Serle will be joining the company in the New Year,” Ms Gaffney said.

Incoming chief executive Mr Serle said he was thrilled to be joining one of the country’s largest media firms.

“The ever changing landscape of media consumption and the way that consumers are engaging with brands, enjoying a social and multi-platform experience, creates huge opportunity and I can't wait to get started, working with the teams to exploit this potential.”
