Exterion Media poaches Barclay’s Josko Grljevic as first chief technology officer to steer digital transition
Exterion Media has appointed Barclay's Josko Grljevic to the newly created role of UK and group chief technology officer, to lead the company's transition to a digital media company.
In the new role Grljevic will be responsible for technology, new platforms and strategy to digitise the company’s business model. He will commence his role on 8 February 2017.
He joins from Barclays PLC where he is currently strategy & performance director. Prior to Barclays, he was instrumental in the overhaul and re-engineering of Trainline.com as IS Director. He was head of infrastructure and security at Tesco, enterprise strategy consultant at Microsoft, and infrastructure architecture manager at Australian retail brand Woolworths.
Shaun Gregory, chief executive of Exterion Media, said: "Our company is entering a new phase, as we digitise ourselves both operationally and the way in which the medium is bought and sold. The sector is changing very fast, and we want to continue leading that change, essentially providing best in class solutions for our people and customers.
"Josko’s appointment validates our ambition, and he has the necessary background and experience to help put technology front and centre within our business."
Grljevic added: “Joining the Exterion Media Team was too good an opportunity to miss. The business has clearly changed a great deal, and now leads a very exciting and thriving sector. Shaun and the team have a bold ambition for the business, and one that has the potential to redefine the sector.”
