Leadership and Change at TVNZ : 1986-2002

Morris, Kevin(2005-01-01)

Abstract

[This case is restricted. Please contact the Case Centre for more details] Julian Mounter was appointed to TVNZ as Director General, arriving from the United Kingdom in 1986 and recruited from Thorn EMI where he managed cable television interests in Europe. He had previously been Thames TV's head of children's programmes, and had climbed the journalistic ladder at the BBC and Fleet Street. At TVNZ, he found himself in charge of a highly centralised and bureaucratic organisation — which at the time was part of the Broadcasting Corporation of New Zealand (BCNZ). In the same year, the State-Owned Enterprises Act was passed, which would later have large implications for the organisation, and require it to be run as a commercially successful business.
