AUCKLAND, Today: MediaWorks commercial director Liz Fraser is leaving after two-and-a-half years – to join corporate travel and expense solutions business Serko Ltd as chief revenue officer.
The story broke this morning in Shanye Curries’ NZ Herald Media Insider column.
Currie wrote: “Her departure follows the fulltime appointment of Wendy Palmer as MediaWorks ceo. Fraser was widely considered to be a contender for the ceo role.”
“Fraser’s move leaves the door open for NZME chief commercial officer Paul Hancox to join MediaWorks’ executive team.”
Serko ceo Darrin Grafton said Fraser had extensive experience driving revenue growth in the travel and media sectors, with senior leadership roles at TVNZ, Air New Zealand and MediaWorks.
“We are thrilled to welcome someone of Liz’s calibre and experience to the executive team at Serko.”
Currie: “Fraser’s move leaves the door open for NZME chief commercial officer Paul Hancox to join MediaWorks’ executive team. He announced his resignation from NZME in June, saying he was joining MediaWorks in a senior commercial role early next year.”
Fraser joined MediaWorks in 2021, following six years at Air New Zealand including regional general manager for the Americas and customer GM.
Fraser said: “Embarking on this new journey with Serko, I am looking forward to stepping back into the world of travel and exploring the limitless horizons of innovation in this space.
“I’m excited to be joining a team that is truly passionate and dedicated to creating products and providing services that make a difference in the world of business travel.”
