Post Media, parent company of the Phnom Penh Post and its sister publication Post Khmer, has a new CEO.
Alex Odom, who previously served as Post Media’s chief financial officer, brings with him a strong track record in Southeast Asia’s financial sector.
Prior to joining the company in early 2015, he logged significant time as an adviser, consultant, investor and executive in Laos and, more recently, Myanmar.
In the past year, Odom has driven increased operational and financial efficiencies across the board at the award-winning Post, Cambodia’s oldest English-language newspaper.
His impact on arrival was immediate, publisher and chairman Bill Clough said yesterday.
“Alex is held in high esteem by our entire staff, and after watching the way he’s handled operations over the past year, I knew I’d found the right man to lead Post Media through a rapidly changing media landscape.
We’re incredibly excited for what the future holds with Alex at the helm.”
Odom yesterday expressed enthusiasm for his newly expanded role.
“I’m honoured and grateful for the opportunity to lead such an exceptional and long-standing organisation,” Odom said.
“The Post has always been known for providing independent and intelligent journalism and I look forward to continuing that historic tradition.”
