Southern Star taps McCreath

Exec fills CFO post

SYDNEY — Major Aussie film and TV producer-distrib Southern Star has named Ross McCreath chief financial officer, replacing Doug Newman, who becomes business development general manager.

McCreath was a long-serving finance director of the ever-embattled and recently shuttered satcaster Australis Media’s Galaxy TV.

Meantime, speculation is mounting that Reg Grundy’s RG Capital may gain a seat on Southern Star’s board, following revelations the former TV titan’s Southern Star stake, which he started building only a few weeks ago, is close to 15%.
