Wharton officially departs Seven West Media

Seven West Mediatoday announced the retirement of Chris Wharton as chief executive officer of Seven West Media WA, several months after he left the office on extended leave.
SWM chairman Kerry Stokes highlighted Mr Wharton's long service with the group, starting in 1995 with Community Newspapers before going on to Channel Seven Perth in 2000 as managing director, then to become managing director of West Australian Newspapers in 2008 and CEO of Seven West Media WA in 2011.
"Late last year Chris took the opportunity to take some extended leave and after a discussion with the Chairman, they agreed that it was an appropriate time for Chris to retire," SWM said in a statement.
He will remain a Telethon trustee and remains committed to the Perth community for which he was recognised with an AM in 2016.
Mr Stokes said: "I am happy to advise that following today's decision, Nick Varigos, Managing Director of recruitment firm Oppeus International, has commenced the process and will make recommendations in the coming weeks."
