Corus Entertainment Inc. has closed its $2.65-billion acquisition of Shaw Communications Inc.’s media division and appointed a team of executive vice-presidents for the combined company. Barbara Williams, formerly president of Shaw Media, is now chief revenue officer at Corus and will “oversee all strategic and operational aspects of generating audience growth and engagement across Corus’ platforms,” the company said in a press release Friday. She will also “play a central role in the development of the company’s growth strategies and ongoing transformation of the organization into a media and content powerhouse,” the release added. Greg McLelland will be chief revenue officer, responsible for “the domestic revenue components of the business” as well as the company’s client insights research team and its “sales support and revenue management initiatives, with a concerted focus on next-generation advertising and analytics.” He was previously senior vice-president of sales at Shaw Media, according to his profile on LinkedIn. Colin Bohm, previously head of Corus Kids, will head international development and corporate strategy. He will be responsible for “the company’s business development and strategic planning activities as we advance our strategic priorities to own and control more content; engage our audiences; and expand into adjacent markets,” the press release said. Tom Peddie will remain chief financial officer, Gary Maavara will stay in his role as general counsel, and Cheryl Fullerton, who was appointed to lead Corus’ human resources department late year, will be in charge of “people and communications.” Shaw Kelly, previously Shaw’s vice-president of media technology, is now Corus’ head of technology, while Kathleen McNair will continue her role as special advisor to the CEO and chief integration officer. “Christine Shipton will exit her current role as Chief Content Officer, but has agreed to stay with Corus over the coming months to support the transition,” the press release added. The CRTC approved the deal in late March.
