    Gaven Morris appointed CBA executive general manager of corporate affairs

    Gaven Morris has been appointed executive general manager of corporate affairs for the Commonwealth Bank Australia (CBA), commencing July 29.

    Morris brings more than 30 years of experience in media, consulting, and education to the role and a background as an international and Australian news executive, reporter, and producer.  

    He was director of news, analysis and investigations at the ABC for six years. Since 2021, he has been managing director of Bastion Transform, the content and digital strategy agency within the Bastion Group.

    Morris is also an industry professor at Western Sydney University’s School of Humanities and Communication Arts and an adjunct professor at the University of Canberra. He has been an advisory board member of Region Media Group, a Canberra-based media production company, for the past two years.

    CBA’s group executive Monique Macleod said: “I’m delighted that Gaven will be joining the Commonwealth Bank team. As well as being a highly respected journalist and news executive, he also has a wealth of experience leading high performing teams in fast-paced environments and through complex and rapid change.

    “This expertise, combined with his ability to engage diverse audiences and his strong personal values, will be an outstanding asset to the team,” Macleod added.
    Mediaweek has contacted Bastion for comment.
    Morris’ new role with CBA comes after Bastion Transform welcomed the appointment of Jenni Ryall to the newly created senior position of group director, business development and strategy.
    Ryall joined the agency from Meta where she led strategic partnerships and drove multi-million-dollar investments into media companies across the Australia and New Zealand region. This included the $15 million Meta News Fund with the Walkley Foundation and the New Zealand investment strategy.
    She also has had an extensive career as a leader in news and digital media in Australia and the US where she has been at the centre of digital transformation, the repositioning of high-growth media brands and the push for innovation in news products.
