Poulton, Brookshaw gone in Vista Radio executive sweep

Vista Radio has released four of its senior executives, including company president Geoff Poulton.

Geoff Poulton

Poulton had been helming the company since 2013, following a 23-year career with Rogers Media. Other casualties of the executive sweep include Murray Brookshaw, Vice-president of Content, who had been with Vista since 2015; Christine Swain, Human Resources Manager, who had been with the company since 2017; and Ddin Morbi, VP of Revenue & Operations. Morbi only joined the company this past January.

Bryan Edwards, one of Vista’s original founders, will take on the role of acting company president.

In an email to Broadcast Dialogue, Brad Erickson, Vista Radio chair, said the company won’t be publicly commenting on the management changes. Poulton and Brookshaw also declined to talk this afternoon about their respective departures.

Vista owns 43 radio stations and 35 digital news portals across B.C., Alberta, Ontario and the Northwest Territories.
