Industry Moves: FT Promotes CIO Jetha To COO

Financial Times is promoting chief information officer Yasmin Jetha to chief operating officer. It’s not the only sign of an increasing technology influence at the highest level – Jetha is holding on to her CIO duties, too, Media Week says. Jetha joined FT in 2006 after nearly two decades with Abbey, where she started as a systems analyst. She has also been responsible for procurement at the paper as well as systems roll-out for the FT’s growing international print presses and production centres. She will integrate systems from recent acquisitions Exec-Appointments and Money-Media. An old Computing article has a good bio. FT COOs in recent years have included Michael Murphy and Zach Leonard.
