Colette Watson Appointed New President of Rogers Sports and Media – Business News

New president at Rogers

The Canadian Press – | History: 357086

Colette Watson becomes the new president of Rogers Sports and Media.

She officially replaces Jordan Banks in the role on Monday.

Banks leaves Rogers after more than two years as president.

Rogers Sports and Media is responsible for many of the telecommunications giant’s properties, including Sportsnet and the Toronto Blue Jays.

A spokeswoman for Rogers says the company is not commenting on changes in management.

The Canadian press confirmed the decision by acquiring an internal memo from Rogers CEO Tony Staffieri.

Watson has held several leadership roles across several Rogers divisions over 30 years, and has most recently led his television and broadcast activities.

Staffieri was named Rogers’ president and CEO on Monday after holding the role on a temporary basis since Nov. 16.

Staffieri, a former CFO, replaced Joe Natale, who left the company in November amid a family dispute between chairman Edward Rogers and his mother and two sisters, who are also board members.

A British Columbia Supreme Court judge eventually sided with Edward’s attempt to replace five directors who had defied his efforts to unilaterally make changes to the company.
