Andrew Szusterman

Executive

After studies in radio broadcasting and English literature — and a stint as a radio DJ — Andrew Szusterman went on his OE, and ended up as Music Director of the UK branch of MTV. Back in New Zealand, he helped launch youth music channel C4, and rose up the MediaWorks ranks to become Chief Content Officer. In early 2020 he became Managing Director of South Pacific Pictures. 

Next to Andrew Shaw, Andrew Szusterman is probably one of the best Executive Producers in the NZ industry. I’ve known Szusty since Channel Z days when he was our station manager. Szusterman is to MediaWorks what Steven Joyce is to the National Party, their Mr Fix it. Martin Bradbury on The Daily Blog, 18 November 2016
