Network Ten has appointed Vida Scott (pictured) as head of communications, effective July 2.
In her new role, Scott will be responsible for the company’s external corporate communications, internal communications, and trade marketing. She will report to Network Ten chief operating officer, Annabelle Herd.
The appointment comes after the departure of Neil Shoebridge, who has opened his own communications consultancy.
Annabelle Herd said: “I am delighted to welcome Vida to the Ten team. With her experience across a range of corporate affairs and communications roles, and her obvious passion for television and media, Vida will be a strong asset to the business.”
Scott said: “It’s a great time to be joining Network Ten. The media industry plays an important role for all Australians and Ten is a key part of that landscape. There are a lot of exciting things happening at the company and I’m looking forward to working with the team to shape Ten’s future.”
Scott has broad media industry experience, having held a number of corporate communications and marketing roles at News Corp Australia and APN News & Media (now HT&E). In March 2017, she joined Westpac Group as Senior Communications Manager, working across the company’s group business units.
Scott started her career at Red Agency, where she worked across Fairfax Media and its associated brands.
