Mr McWilliam, described by SWM chief executive James Warburton as a “doyen of the media industry”, joined the company in 2003 and has played a key role in its evolution, strategic direction and commercial and business affairs.

SWM Chairman Kerry Stokes AC said he thanked Mr McWilliam for his “significant contribution” and wished he and his wife Nicky all the best in the future.

“Bruce has been an excellent executive of Seven for the past 21 years, having been involved in all of the major corporate initiatives we have undertaken during that period, and a director of Seven Group Holdings for many years,” Mr Stokes said.

Mr Warburton said Mr McWilliam had been a “fundamental part” of all the corporate moves at Seven for more than two decades.

“Working with Bruce has always been very rewarding and entertaining, and he is always extremely generous with his time and advice,” he said.

“Everyone at Seven will miss his wise counsel, guidance, knowledge and sense of humour, and we all wish him the very best for what lies ahead.”

Mr McWilliam said he had enjoyed a “fantastic” 21 years with the company and was “honoured to be part of the transformation, growth and success of the business over the years”.

“Working with Kerry Stokes and James Warburton in his two iterations at Seven has never been dull,” he said.

“I’m very proud of my association with Seven and the Seven team, and I wish them every success in the years ahead. Moving forward, I’ll be focused on my corporate and media advisory and property interests.”
