Post Media taps industry vet as COO

Chan Davy, a veteran of nearly 20 years on the Cambodian media scene, has returned to Post Media as chief operating officer, effective immediately.

Charged with expanding the company’s commercial activities, Davy will provide leadership across advertising, distribution, circulation and marketing for both the Phnom Penh Post and its sister publication Post Khmer.

Davy, who chaired the board of WECREATE Cambodia and worked stints at other media outlets, said she sees the move as a homecoming.

“It was just time,” she said yesterday. “I see room for continued, serious growth in the Post’s flagship print products but I’m also excited to take the country’s preeminent newspaper into a future filled with digital innovation and products that will help us reach a broader audience. We’ve got the resources and brand recognition but most importantly the human capital, the teamwork, in place to make that happen. It’s truly exciting.”

Post CEO Alex Odom, who made the appointment along with publisher Bill Clough, yesterday heralded the move.

“Chan Davy’s knowledge and experience in Cambodia’s print media landscape is unparalleled,” Odom said.

“I’m very excited to have her on board and look forward to working closely with her to continue to take Post Media to new heights.”
