TORONTO — Canadian broadcaster CTVGlobemedia said Friday that CFO Robin Fillingham will retire in April after 37 years with the company.
Fillingham is being replaced as CFO by John Gossling, a former KPMG partner who most recently served as senior vp and CFO at Rogers Wireless Communications, the mobile phone arm at cable giant Rogers Communications.
In 1971, Fillingham joined Baton Broadcasting, one of seven affiliates of CTV that then Baton CEO Ivan Fecan used as a platform during the late 1990s to take control of the national TV network. His executive stints at CTV included secretary, senior vp administration and CFO.
Fillingham’s retirement follows regulatory approval received last June for CTV parent CTVGlobemedia to acquire rival broadcaster Chum Ltd. for $1.4 billion.
CTVGlobemedia said Fillingham will remain as a consultant through Gossling’s transition.
