Nine months after leaving advertising agency Marketforce to run the Western Australian operations of Kerry Stokes' Seven West Media, which publishes The West Australian, John Driscoll has left the listed company.
"After further consultation and consideration, Mr Driscoll has, for family reasons, decided that he would not be able to accommodate the additional responsibilities," the statement said.
“I would like to thank John for his services. He has instituted a number of important reforms for our newspapers which will continue to benefit the company after his departure.”
SWM said a new leader of its WA business will be announced early next week.
