As Managing Director of the company, he oversees the effectiveness and efficiency of the entire operation. He ensures the business runs as smoothly and effectively as possible. At the same time, he looks to meet and exceed what the business demands, including the needs and expectations of our clients, customers, readers, followers and fans.
Tony joined Highbury Media in 1998. His strong financial acumen and deep understanding of the core business has led to his longevity and success at the company, including his appointment to the board in 2005. He remains passionate about the business.
“Our business is so diverse, every day throws up really interesting challenges. Turning those into opportunities really keeps us on our toes!”
However, it is Tony’s personal understanding of the intricacies of the journalism profession that has earned him the respect of the company’s editors and content producers. He earned his B.Journ (Journalism, English and Psychology majors) and BA (Hons) in Journalism and English literature from Rhodes University in the Eastern Cape.
Tony believes real success lies in finding happiness in what you do with your life, at work and away from work.
An avid mountain biker and road cyclist, he likes to spend as much time as possible with his two young children, and when he’s not at Highbury, or on one of his bikes, likes to leave the city for the countryside with his family on weekends.
