Voelte paves the way for Seven's next emperor

As he did at Seven West, Don Voelte may play a pinch-hitting role at Seven Group which will set the scene for the rise of Kerry Stokes' ultimate successor.

When Don Voelte completed his brief but effective stint as chief executive of Seven West Media and a more conventional television executive in Tim Worner was anointed his successor it appeared the executive leadership of Kerry Stokes’ empire had been settled.

Today, however, Stokes announced that Voelte, who appeared to have been returned to his former role as a non-executive director of Seven West, has been appointed managing director and chief executive of Seven Group Holdings.
