The WIN Network has appointed Chris Halios-Lewis to the position of chief financial officer of WIN Corporation. Halios-Lewis has worked in WIN’s finance department in the roles of finance manager and financial controller for the past 10 years and has, over the last few years, been heavily involved in WIN and Birketu’s senior operational and strategic group.
Birketu is the private company owned by Bruce Gordon and family, which controls many of the group’s investments.
Halios-Lewis replaces Daniel Collis in the role after he departed WIN Corp at the end of 2018 after 15 years with the company.
As chief financial officer, Halios-Lewis will report into the board of WIN and Birketu and will work with the chief executive officer, Andrew Lancaster, to ensure the ongoing prosperity of both companies.
In announcing the appointment, Lancaster said: “Chris has been a great asset to our operational and strategic team and his appointment is testament to the valuable contribution he has made in delivering our financial and strategic initiatives. His knowledge and experience of our business will strengthen our executive leadership team as we continue to deliver outcomes in what is a complex media environment.”
Halios-Lewis said he was honoured to take on the role of CFO. “I look forward to building on the significant progress that has already been made positioning the company for sustainable growth within a challenging landscape and positively contributing to the corporation’s strategic priorities.”
Halios-Lewis will maintain direct oversight of finance, payroll and property as well as representing WIN and Birketu on various company boards.
