The Board of Positive Media Incorporated, home of 89.9 TheLight, announced that Jarrod will leave in January after leading the organisation for the past 10 years.
Jarrod joined PositiveMedia, as Station Manager before being promoted to CEO in 2012. In that time, he has overseen the exponential growth of the organisation, from 394,000 monthly listeners in 2009 to a peak of almost 1.3 million monthly listeners.
With an organisational vision to see “Every life alight with the love of Jesus”, Jarrod has steered PositiveMedia to deliver a message of hope and love in the city of Melbourne.
Jarrod has a wealth of achievements including partnerships with like-minded organisations and the launch of three new media brands under the banner of PositiveMedia.
“The last 12 years at PositiveMedia have been some of the richest and most fulfilling years of my life and I’m so proud of the successes we’ve achieved together,” Jarrod said. “With the organisation in an incredibly strong position, and after spending a quarter of my life there, the time is right for me to begin a new chapter. I’m excited about the opportunities God is leading me to and I thank our listeners, supporters, staff and volunteers for the role they have played in that. It’s been an honour”.
Annemarie Numa, Chair of the PositiveMedia Board, said: “We are grateful for Jarrod’s leadership and unwavering commitment to see lives impacted in Melbourne. His dedication to growing relationships with donors and sponsors has paved the way for the healthy state he leaves the organisation in, and on which we will continue building in the future. While the PositiveMedia Board is sorry to see Jarrod leave, we thank God for Jarrod’s time as CEO and pray for success in his future roles”.
The Board has commenced an executive search to select a new CEO, with the outcome of this process to be communicated at the appropriate time in 2022.
