Stan said Mitchell will work on developing new commercial opportunities with business partners for Australia’s leading local subscription video on demand service.

“Jake’s background in business media and his extensive network within the industry makes him the perfect choice to expand our presence and develop new opportunities with our commercial partners,” Stan chief executive Mike Sneesby said.

“We are excited to have Jake on board.”

Mitchell was most recently media reporter at The Australian and was previously joint Street Talk editor at The Australian Financial Review.
