Australian Associated Press CEO to step down in New Year

Clive Marshall, CEO of Australian Associated Press, has been appointed CEO of the Press Association Group in London.

Mr Marshall said he’d been privileged to head AAP for nine years, saying:

““It is testimony to the skill, commitment and dedication of our employees that Australian Associated Press is now recognised by its peers as one of the world’s leading newsn agencies.”

He joined AAP in 2001, having previously spent 8 years at the Press Association group. He will leave AAP at the end of January 2010

Michael Gill, Chairman of AAP, said Mr Marshall had transformed the business during his time there.

“Clive fostered the essential news focus of our agency and managed the business smoothly into some well-suited diversification,” Mr Gill said.

In particular, Mr Marshall said he was proud of the success of Pagemasters, AAP’s page production business.

“In the past seven years Pagemasters has grown from a company employing 30 people providing TV listings to Australian newspapers, to one which today employs over 140 people and produces 4500 editorial and data pages each week for newspapers in Australia, New Zealand and the United Kingdom,” he said.

“Pagemasters is receiving enquiries for its services from newspaper publishers around the world.”
