Exciting new Leadership Change for CMA

Written by ritay on . Posted in News & Updates, Press Releases

I am pleased to let you know about an exciting new chapter in the life of Christian Media Australia with the announcement of Nathan Brown to be appointed as our new CEO.

Nathan is already very familiar to many of our members, as he’s been involved with CMA for nearly a decade, having served on the Board for the past 9 years.

He is a highly capable person and we look forward to his leadership in further developing and growing our CMA Community (click here for Nathan’s full bio).

Nathan’s familiarity with our Vision and Strategy, along with his already established relationships will see good momentum continue with the implementation of our Cultural Influence Strategy, born out of the conviction that to speak to our nation – it takes influence.

The 4 key Goals of this strategy are:

1. To transform secular media
2. To grow Christian media
3. To establish Christian worldview as credible
4. To empower the church to engage media and culture
CMA has a number of significant programs and initiatives underway toward achieving these objectives and is well positioned to aggressively move forward in 2015. Nathan steps into the CEO role full-time from October.

A new chapter for Mark Reddy

Over the past 2 years as CEO, Mark Reddy has enabled CMA to take significant steps toward our Vision, to see Jesus made known through Media and the Arts. He’s been very much God’s man for the job and we are very thankful for his great leadership.

New doors have opened for Mark and his wife Vickie, and so they will be relocating their family to the USA in late 2014. However, it’s not goodbye as Mark will continue as Director of the SPARC Community (alongside a new Australia based SPARC Executive Officer which we are currently seeking), and involvement with the Connect Conference.

As the CMA Board, we are excited about the future, and about the real progress that has already been made. Our focus is and will remain – supporting our members in reaching ALL Australians with the message of Jesus.

Warm Regards
Phil Edwards
President
