SBS boss steps down

Michael Ebeid AM will step down as SBS Managing Director. Ebeid’s departure comes seven and a half years into a nine year appointment. 

Ebeid said: “My decision to step down has been one of the most difficult decisions I’ve made. Serving as the SBS Managing Director has been a real honour and privilege and I depart feeling confident that this is the right time for a new Managing Director to take the organisation forward.” 

Chairman of the SBS Board of Directors, Dr Bulent Hass Dellal AO said: “On behalf of the SBS Board of Directors, I thank Michael enormously for his service and dedication to SBS.”

In 2017, Ebeid was made a Member of the Order of Australia for services to broadcast media and multicultural affairs as an executive, innovator and business leader, and was also named CEO of the Year for 2017 by CEO Magazine. 

Ebeid will depart SBS on 1 October 2018 and make an announcement in coming weeks about his next role.

The SBS Board of Directors will immediately begin a recruitment process to recruit a new SBS Managing Director.
