Alhadeff has filled one of the two places vacated by two previous directors including on held by Daryl Karp.

The other director appointed is Christine Zeitz who has been a non-executive Director on the SBS Board since May 2018.

Minister for Communications, Urban Infrastructure, Cities and the Arts,  Paul Fletcher said both members bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise to the Board that will enable them to understand the needs and interests of SBS’s diverse audience.
“I congratulate Mr Alhadeff and Ms Zeitz on their appointments and look forward to seeing the valuable contribution they will make to the SBS Board,” Minister Fletcher said.
“They will strengthen the already diverse skills available to SBS’s leadership team, including in areas such as the Asia Pacific and multicultural affairs.”
Vic Alhadeff is currently a part-time consultant with the NSW Jewish Board of Deputies and the Executive Council of Australian Jewry and a member of the Australian Institute of Company Directors. He has extensive experience in media, business and multicultural affairs.
Alhadeff commented: “I am deeply honoured to have been appointed to the SBS board. SBS plays a vital role in fostering understanding and appreciation of diversity in Australia. Its ethos accords precisely with my own, as I have dedicated my career to building a more resilient, respectful and inclusive society. I am delighted to have the opportunity to work alongside the SBS board and executive to advance the organisation’s mission.”
Alhadeff led a three-year campaign which achieved legislative reform, resulting in the passing of s93Z of the NSW Crimes Act, outlawing incitement to violence on the basis of race, religion, gender or sexual identity.
Co-CEO of the ECAJ Peter Wertheim told J-Wire: “The esecutive of the ECAJ wisheds a hearty mazeltov to Vic on his appointment which is thoroughlly deserved.”
Vic Alhadeff’s appointment is for five years.
