After 15 years with MediaCom Sean Seamer departs CEO role for Supercars CEO role

Sean Seamer.jpgAfter 15 years with MediaCom, CEO Sean Seamer is set to take up Supercars CEO role.

Supercars has appointed Seamer to replace James Warburton as the head of the sport with a clear remit to continue the domestic and international success of the business.

Seamer was selected as the Supercars CEO from a high calibre list of high profile business and sporting leaders who expressed interest in the role.

Seamer originally started with MediaCom back in 2003 and took on the CEO role here in Australia 2 years ago. The business is in extremely good health, currently leading the new business rankings here in Australia after making a strong investment in technology and talent at senior levels in all markets.
Says Seamer: "I'm very thankful for all the opportunities that MediaCom has provided me over all these years. I've been fortunate enough to travel the world with them and have built life-long friendships as a result. The business has a strong sense of purpose and a fantastic culture to continue to build on. We have done an amazing job over the past two years and have strength and depth of talent in all offices which I'm sure will continue to grow."

Says Mark Lollback, CEO of GroupM: "MediaCom is in the strongest position it has been in for 5 years. The work that the leadership team has put in over the past 24 months is outstanding, and while we are naturally disappointed to see Sean leave to pursue his passion, the fundamentals of the business are strong and so is the leadership team that has been built. The platform is there for many more years of success and I look forward to working with MediaCom to unlock that success. I would also like to thank Sean for his leadership and contribution to rebuilding Mediacom in Australia and wish him all the very best in his new role."

Seamer will commence the role as CEO next year at a date to be confirmed, and a successor will be announced shortly.
