Posted by admin On March - 10 - 2009



TVW was a case where talented individuals could rise through the ranks to fill the highest roles. Most executives at some point or other gained experience close to the work face. None more so that Kevin Campbell, who started as a technician and later became the Chairman and Managing Director of TVW Enterprises Ltd (Channel Seven Perth). Where else could the person in the top position have the skills to walk into an operational area and demonstrate a full knowledge and experience in that area?

For 35 years, Kevin was involved in the broadcasting industry in Australia. On completion of a technical cadetship through the Post Master General’s Department, Kevin joined TVW Channel 7 as an technician in 1964 and worked continuously with them until his retirement in 1999. In that time he was appointed General Manager SAS Channel 7 Adelaide (1977). From 1988 to 1991 he was Managing Director of the Seven Television Network and from 1991 to 1999 he was Chairman and Managing Director of TVW Enterprises Ltd (Channel Seven Perth). In 1998, he was awarded a Member of the Order of Australia (AM), for his contribution to broadcasting and his community service activities.

Kevin is currently non-executive Chairman of Jumbuck Entertainment Limited, non-executive Chairman of Grain Biotech Australia Pty Ltd and non-executive Chairman of Great Western Entertainment Pty Ltd and a non-executive director of Movies Online Ltd. He was also appointed Chairman of Western Australian Soccer Association Ltd., Chairman of the Lotteries Commission of Western Australia, the WA Academy of Performing Arts and the immediate past Chairman of ScreenWest and Entrepreneurs-in-Residence Pty Ltd.
