It was confirmed today that the Supercars Championship has appointed Sean Seamer as their new leader, the Mediacom CEO set to replace James Warburton when he leaves the series at the end of next month.

Seamer has worked across the US, Europe, Asia and of course Australia and relishes his new role of continuing the domestic and international success of the business.

Seamer was just one of many high profile business and sporting leaders who expressed interest in the coveted role and brings a wealth of experience across business development, marketing, sponsorship, digital media, content and organisational culture.

“Very few times in your life do you get the opportunity to combine your passion with your craft,” he said. “For me, this is one of those rare moments. The Supercars team, led by James, has the sport on a fantastic growth trajectory. With innovation in engineering, race formats and international distribution all on the roadmap, it’s a great time to be joining.”
