Cricket Australia appoints Stephanie Beltrame as EGM of Broadcasting and Commercial Manager
Cricket Australia today announced the appointment of Stephanie Beltrame as Executive General Manager of Broadcasting and Commercial. Stephanie has been in the interim role since early November and was previously GM Media Rights and Broadcasting and a key figure in the media rights negotiations over the past 10 years.
With 19 years of experience at Cricket Australia, Stephanie has a proven track record rising from her first position in the company as Administration Officer in the CEO’s office in 2000.
Charged with deepening the relationships with broadcast and commercial partners, Stephanie will work to ensure the ongoing growth of Cricket Australia’s media and commercial partnerships.
Cricket Australia Chief Executive Officer, Kevin Roberts, welcomed Stephanie to the role saying: “Steph has been an integral part of the team and has demonstrated a clear ability to build broadcast partnerships and optimise the value of CA’s media rights.
“Steph is a highly regarded leader and I’m pleased to confirm her position on CA’s executive team.
Stephanie commented: “It’s such an exciting time for CA and I feel honoured and privileged to take on the leadership role to see our biggest broadcast media deal and important commercial partnerships come to life.
"Given my impending parental leave, I am proud to be working for an organisation that has such an outstanding attitude towards equal opportunity.”
Antonia Beggs, currently Head of Match Operations and Events, will be stepping into the position of interim EGM Broadcasting and Commercial until Stephanie returns from parental leave next year.
Kevin added: “Steph is well supported by her team and we are equally pleased to have Antonia step in to the interim position while Steph is on parental leave.
“Antonia brings many years of experience delivering major sporting events and establishing commercial partnerships in sport. She offers the team stability and strong leadership in the interim and I look forward to continuing to work with her in this new position”, said Kevin.
Stephanie’s appointment is effective immediately and Antonia will step into the interim role on 30 December when Stephanie’s parental leave comes into effect
