BREAKING. Mark Rosin out as eMedia Investments COO after 5 years, no replacement yet.

eMedia Investments late on Tuesday afternoon confirmed to TVwithThinus in a media enquiry that Mark Rosin, chief operating officer (COO) at eMedia Investments has resigned. No replacement has been named.

Sources told TVwithThinus on Tuesday that Mark Rosin resigned and is leaving his post at the company housing South Africa's free-to-air commercial TV channel e.tv, the TV news channel eNCA (DStv 403) on MultiChoice's DStv satellite pay-TV platform, and its free-to-air satellite service Openview. 

Mark Rosin's exit comes 5 months after Andre van der Veen resigned and left as eMedia Holdings CEO at the end of November 2018.

In response to a media enquiry eMedia Investments says "Mark Rosin will step down at the end of April 2019, after 8 years in the eMedia group, first as e.tv's lawyer, then in-house business affairs and legal executive, before becoming the COO in 2014.

eMedia Investments says an announcement regarding the COO position will be made in due course".

"Mark leaves the organisation having worked with different CEO's and liaising directly with the board and shareholders, while managing operations within the group".

Khalik Sheriff, eMedia Investments CEO, says "We are going to miss his energy, warmth and capacity to stay calm under pressure. However, Mark will not be lost to the group. He will continue to provide consulting services to us, whether as a lawyer or media consultant".
