Mr Sneesby was appointed Chief Executive, and Director of both Nine, and Domain, Nine’s 60%-owned associate, in April 2021. Prior to this, Mike was the CEO of Nine’s Subscription Video On Demand business, Stan, heading the group from its inception in 2013 through to profitability and a 2m-plus subscriber base.
Mike has a depth of Media and Telco experience, gained both in Australia and overseas, having led a range of start-up and digital businesses across these industries. Mike’s previous media experience has been instrumental in the growth of Nine’s digital revenues, as the company focuses on extending the distribution of its premium content across key digital platforms.

To this end, he has overseen Nine’s recent work on Purpose and Values – a unifying statement that provides the framework for a high performance culture at Nine.

He holds a Degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of Wollongong and a Masters of Business Administration from the Macquarie Graduate School of Management.
