Scott Jolly appointed COO of MediaHub Australia as the company restructures for the future
SYDNEY, 14 October 2020 – MediaHub Australia has always been a forward-thinking organisation and now, after over a decade of continued success, the company has made its most significant restructuring since its launch as it positions itself to professionally manage the changing world of broadcast technology and consumer viewing habits. The most significant new appointment and one of many, is Scott Jolly being promoted to the role of Chief Operating Officer.
MediaHub CEO Alan Sweeney explained, “As an organisation MediaHub has never sat still and has always led from the front. While the future is clear to us requiring a move to cloud-based operations with a different focus around IP technology, we have equally applied caution in selecting an appropriate platform which is fully IP rather than a hybrid of IP and traditional SDI. Now, with MediaHub’s selection of Ateme as our IP value chain partner, we can and will accelerate our move away from our legacy broadcast technology. With these Technology Platform changes come an essential restructuring which adds further significant value to the organisation. Scott’s promotion to COO is just one of those significant value-adds.”

To that end as COO Jolly now has full responsibility for the day-to-day operations of MediaHub. He will continue to report to Alan Sweeney but takes on added board responsibilities. He will also provide Sweeney with assistance in new business development.
Sweeney added, “This is a very exciting time for Scott and the whole team. My role will refocus to the guiding and continual development of MediaHub’s medium to long term strategy and continued marketing efforts.”
MediaHub has made other substantial changes to their management and operational structure with, amongst others, current Executive Head of Technology, Simon Scott, now also reporting to Scott Jolly.
Additional promotions include Scott Whittaker becoming Technology Solutions Manager, Michael Kennedy as Technology Support and Communications Manager, David Macgee into Operations Manager, Jacob Gorrie as Senior Solutions Architect, Sanjay Kumar becomes Senior IT Systems Engineer, Adam Zattera as IT Systems Engineer and Hayden Anderson becoming IT Systems Engineer. Adam Durant will also take on Channel Manager responsibilities for the ABC in the new year.
Alan Sweeney concluded, “This is the beginning of a very exciting phase for MediaHub, our clients and the entire media and broadcasting landscape in Australia and beyond. We will soon commence recruiting specialists in areas such as IT to further underpin our move into the emerging cloud-based Technologies and in turn, further leverage our growing partnership with our video delivery infrastructure solutions provider, Ateme.”
