WIFT NZ member takes on transformational role at TVNZ

Congratulations to Cate Slater on her appointment by TVNZ to the newly created role of chief transformation officer.

Mad.daily.com reports that Slater, who has been at TVNZ for more than 10 years, will lead a transition from a broadcast-based business to a digital-first media organisation. Her fellow WIFT NZ member Nevak Rogers (Rongowhakaata/Tongan) will step into Slater’s former role as acting director of content. Nevak has led TVNZ’s local content team for four years.

TVNZ CEO Simon Power said TVNZ was embarking on a multi-year programme to evolve the business so it was better able to meet the realities and expectations of modern audiences.

“Cate’s in-depth understanding of TVNZ’s content and audience proposition will help inform this significant strategic shift,” Power said.

About Rogers, Power said, “She has a wealth of experience within New Zealand’s media and production sector…She will continue to champion local programming while providing continuity of leadership for our content team.”
