Most recently, he led Nine’s digital and publishing business including The Sydney Morning Herald, The Age and The Australian Financial Review.

He played a key role in Australia’s digital platforms legislation, delivering world-leading agreements with Google and Meta, while also taking the Fairfax Media business through the country’s most significant cross-platform media merger.
He has a keen intersection in product-led growth and presently advises media organisations around the world.
