We're celebrating the well-deserved promotion of WIFT member Rachel Antony (pictured) - last week she was appointed CEO of Greenstone TV!

Rachel Antony was previously working as Director of Production and Development at the company. Greenstone, part of the Australian-owned CJZ Group, produces some of New Zealand's top-rating titles, including Border Patrol, Motorway Patrol, Dog Squad, Highway Cops, and Neighbours At War.

In a press release from the company, CJZ Group CEO Matt Campbell said, "We are extremely pleased Rachel has accepted the CEO role, replacing Richard Driver who has been in the top job for the past two-and-a-half years. Rachel has done an outstanding job since joining GS TV three years ago and is very well equipped to take on this new challenge. Rachel is an impressive operator and her strong track record across both TV and digital, position her perfectly as CEO."

Rachel said, "As well as being behind much of Kiwis' favourite viewing for the past two decades, Greenstone's been a really big part of my career; I first worked at Greenstone, as a researcher, in 1999 - so to now step into the role of CEO is a huge privilege. I'm grateful to Richard, Matt, Michael and Nick for the trust they're placing in me and so grateful for the amazing team I get to work with every day. It's a disruptive time for the media industry, but given there's rarely a day in production that doesn't involve some creative problem solving, we're feeling confident we can meet the challenges."
