This Week REA CEO departs:
Jamie Pride (CEO of the REA Group) departed suddenly (don’t they all) from REA during the week only to be replaced (a little too quickly) by Jeremy Phillips.
Jeremy is currently Executive Vice President, Office of the Chairman, at News Corporation (tell me what the this title means), which owns a 60.7% stake in REA Group through its subsidiary News Limited. It is getting a little boring all these people departing and being replaced by News Ltd peeps, so what I may do in the future is just give a monthly round up of people summoned to nondescript hotels and given their marching orders.
Error: Please note, Jamie is not replaced by Jeremy – Jeremey is now REA Group Director. I don’t know what that role does, but maybe he is in charge of Hotel bookings. Thanks for all your comments and corrections.
