News Corp Australia has restructured its technology and digital teams after its chief information and technology officer, Tom Quinn, departed the business after 11 years at the company.

Alisa Bowen has replaced Quinn as chief technology officer, a promotion from her previous role as group director of digital product and development. The move sees the technology and digital teams come together under Bowen.

The Australian reports that chief executive Peter Tonagh says: “By bringing the two teams together we will create a platform for stronger collaboration and speed up decision making and product delivery.”

Bowen is also tipped to join the board of hipages, after playing a key role in the aquisiton of a 25% stake for News Corp.

Her previous role was chief producer of Dow Jones, publisher of the Wall Street Journal. Quinn is yet to announce his plans for the future.
