Rogers appoints Rick Brace to head media arm
TORONTO – Rogers Communications has appointed longtime Bell Media executive Rick Brace to head its media business, replacing the outgoing Keith Pelley. Pelley announced in April that he was leaving to become the new commissioner and CEO of the European Tour golf circuit. Brace, with 35 years of experience in the media business, helped found Bell's successful TSN allsports channel and served as president at both TSN and CTV. “Rick is a seasoned business leader with strong operational experience and a passion for the media industry that's second to none,” Rogers CEO Guy Laurence said in a statement announcing the appointment on Tuesday.
