XWP, a global web development provider, has announced the appointment of Myles Lagolago-Craig as its new global chief executive.

Lagolago-Craig will guide Melbourne-headquartered XWP in its mission to tackle the biggest technological challenges in digital publishing, onboard digital and engineering talent from around the globe, and enable the business’ industry-leading clients to tell their story in new and exciting ways.

The experienced digital leader has worked at News Corp Australia for the past 20 years and served as the director of publishing technology and services since June 2020.

During his tenure, he led the development of the platforms that enabled some of Australia’s most high-traffic websites, including brands such as, Fox Sports, and The Australian. He also delivered the largest WordPress enterprise installation in Australia to more than 15 News Corp websites, involving more than 1,000 internal staff.

Lagolago-Craig was also responsible for the development of numerous technical projects with key partners including Google, Facebook and Apple.

Speaking on the appointment, founder of XWP Dave Rosen said, “For some time now, we’ve been looking at taking XWP to the next level and, after a period of unprecedented growth, we’re delighted to have Myles on board as CEO. The breadth of his experience really speaks for itself, having worked on some amazing projects that have dramatically shaped the landscape of the web over the course of his career. I look forward to XWP’s continued growth under his direction.”

“The global talent at XWP combined with the world-leading projects we deliver around the world for great brands is why I’m excited to be joining XWP as CEO,” says Lagolago-Craig. “The opportunity is to build on the phenomenal growth over the past few years, bring my passion for scaling high-performing digital teams, and continue XWP’s commitment to building an open and performant web.”

Lagolago-Craig said he was looking forward to the challenge of accelerating the growth of XWP, founded in 2013 by Dave Rosen. The company has employees in more than 30 countries, and its customers include notable brands such as Automattic, Rolling Stone, Google, and many more.

“I have worked with XWP as a partner for many years and I have always been impressed with their culture and expertise in digital publishing,” said Lagolago-Craig. “Storytelling has never been more important for brands and publishers. Enterprises rely on experts to navigate this at scale and this is what XWP is positioned for.”
