Sibley says, ?To take the reins of a business as robust as MTV Networks Australia during this time of growth is a real thrill, and I?m very excited about helping further the connection MTV and VH1 have with their audiences, advertisers and business partners. MTV now has truly established itself in Australia as the premier brand for youth, thanks to the commitment of a very talented team. I?m looking forward to capitalizing on this trajectory and taking our businesses to the next level of growth.?

Sibley will report directly to Robbins and be based at the company?s Sydney headquarters.
