News Corp. taps chief tech officer

Paul Cheesbrough will oversee digital expansion

News Corp. has tapped Paul Cheesbrough as chief technology officer.

News comes after the departure of News Corp.’s chief digital officer Jon Miller last month.

Cheesbrough will report directly to chairman and CEO Rupert Murdoch, according to a statement Tuesday.

In his new role, Cheesbrough will oversee the development of digital products and expansion, collaborating with the News Corp. technology teams and education businesses, as well as the company’s newly split publishing business. In July, News Corp.’s board approved a plan to split the company’s entertainment and publishing divisions into two publicly traded entities. Miller’s exit in August was viewed as the first casualty of that separation.

Cheesbrough most recently served as chief information officer for News Corp. subsidiary News International. Exec joined the company in 2010 and helped lead News International’s efforts to move to more cloud-based technologies.
