Media giant News Corp Australia has announced a trio of changes to its digital leadership team.
Julian Delany (pictured above), managing director of News DNA, will expand his current responsibilities for digital – including subscriptions, product delivery, content optimisation and digital revenue – to incorporate digital platforms and strategy, as well as taking on accountability for Food Corp.
Dominic Hatfield will move to the new role of chief information officer, expanding his current responsibilities to incorporate business intelligence and enterprise data.
Michael Miller, executive chairman of News Corp Australasia, said: “These changes reflect our ambition to create the digital organisation that best aligns digital and technology with our strategy and objectives of increasing audiences and their engagement, being more efficient and driving profitable growth.
“We are moving to a model that realigns the responsibilities under digital and technology to best reflect how we will serve both our external consumers and our internal customers.
“The result is a clear digital ecosystem to deliver on consumer product and client solutions along with a sharper focus for technology to allow it to evolve into a true enterprise and information function.
“With Julian and Dominic, I am confident these changes will ensure we have the expertise, roles and resources to best support our goal of driving profitable growth as we build our digital future.”
Furthermore, Adam King, chief data officer at News Corp Australia, has accepted a new role at Fox Sports. King has played a valuable role in the News DNA team as the driving force behind the delivery and commercialisation of News Connect.
