THE Vanuatu Broadcasting and Television Corporation (VBTC) needs a strong and qualified leadership to rescue the organisation from its state, says VBTC chairperson, Johnson Naviti Marakipule.

PACNEWS reported Mr Marakipule made the statement after the appointment of Francis Herman as TBTC's chief executive officer last month.

Mr Herman was the former CEO of the Fiji Broadcasting Corporation (FBC).

"Mr Herman's appointment is in line with the recommendations of the latest review report on the VBTC," Mr Marakipule said.

Mr Herman's appointment became effective as of November 21, 2017.

"After series of interviews, the board concluded that Mr Herman's leadership and considerable experience in both media and marketing, along with his strong track record of success as former CEO of Fiji Broadcasting, and strong networking throughout the region, he is the most preferred candidate for the role," Mr Marakipule said.

Mr Marakipule, who is also director-general of the Prime Minister's office, said the Council of Ministers had approved the review recommendations, therefore, Mr Herman's appointment was implemented forthwith.
