Shane Jurgens has been appointed general manager of SCA’s Gold Coast business.
SCA executive general manager of Queensland, Ken Wood, said the interview process for the role had been highly competitive.
“Shane has been with SCA just shy of 18 years and has been instrumental in driving the performance of our Townsville team in various sales leadership positions and most recently as general manager,” he said.
“I have complete confidence that Shane’s tenure at SCA and his proven success in both sales and operational leadership will serve him well in taking on this next opportunity working closely with our Gold Coast leadership team.”
Commenting on his new role, Jurgens said: “I look forward to working with everyone to support and grow this amazing team and settling into everything Gold Coast.”
Jurgens will officially start his new role on 10 July, relocating to the Gold Coast over the coming weeks.
SCA is now recruiting Jurgens’ replacement as general manager of SCA Townsville.
The news comes after Tuesday’s announcement that SCA has reached an agreement with Network 10 to continue to broadcast channels 10, 10 Bold, 10 Peach and 10 Shake in the three aggregated television markets of regional Queensland, Southern NSW, and regional Victoria until 31 December 2023.
SCA first commenced broadcasting Network 10 programming in these regional markets on 1 July 2021. The parties’ current commercial terms will continue until 31 December 2023, and the parties are in ongoing discussions regarding further extension of the affiliation.
As part of the ongoing discussions, SCA and Network 10 have agreed to explore opportunities to deliver further value to their advertising partners. This will include greater collaboration and synergy between the parties’ national sales teams in presenting advertising and sponsorship opportunities to national advertisers and agencies.
