The Federal Government has made three new appointments to the Screen Australia board, including PricewaterhouseCoopers’ Megan Brownlow as deputy chair.
Brownlow, who has worked in media and marketing for 20 years, is the editor of PwC’s annual publication The Australian Entertainment & Media Outlook.
She’s joined on the board by producer Joanna Werner (Dance Academy, Secret City) and financial services lawyer at Vanguard Investment Australia, Jenny Taing. Each will serve a three year term.
In a statement, Minister for Arts and Communications Mitch Fifield said Brownlow’s experience as a media and entertainment industry advisor would add a strong commercial element to the board.
He also said Werner’s experience in children’s content would be invaluable, and Taing’s regulatory and governance work across different sectors would bring a high level of expertise to the board.
Other members of the Screen Australia board include Nicholas Moore (chair), Al Clark, Michael Hawkins, Claudia Karvan and Richard King.
