Stuart Spiteri is Chief Operating Officer at News Digital Media – and worked previously at Google as the head of platforms for Japan and Asia-Pacific. Here he discusses his new role at one of Australia’s biggest publishers, the challenges/ opportunities that lie ahead and some wider trends from the greater APAC market.
Can you give some overview on the new role at News Digital Media – and some background on your experience in the APAC region?
I joined NDM in December 2011 from Google in Singapore where I was head of platforms across the Japan and Asia-Pac region, looking after the display business including DoubleClick suite of products including Ad Exchange, plus Invite Media.
Prior to Google, I was with Akamai Technologies as MD of their Asia-Pac business for seven years, providing platform-led technological solutions to a broad range of blue chip organisations that included working closely with all major Australian publishers.ExchangeWire
