Richard Cross, CTO, ITV

 

ITV plc is the UK’s leading commercial broadcaster and TV production business. Richard is responsible for all aspects of technology operation and exploitation for the group including traditional IT, broadcast networks, production technology and new revenue development. With over 1000 staff and annual spend of £200M, he has championed technology as a driver of innovation and value, while continually reducing costs and improving service and reliability.

His diverse responsibilities have included developing and implementing a strategy that uses technology to drive transformational business change across the business and leading a highly successful corporate merger that was completed in just 9 months. He has also promoted the revenue generating potential of new technologies to the main Board – leading to the creation of a new corporate division dedicated to their commercial exploitation – and created a new Emerging technology exploitation group to identify, promote, trial and commercialise new technologies.

Within 18 months of joining, Richard had reduced IT operations and infrastructure costs by nearly 50% through standardising, centralising and rationalising organisation, processes and technology. He has also been instrumental in dramatically improved satisfaction with IT services through ITIL-based service management and proactive communication strategy.

Prior to ITV, Richard was CTO of Carlton communications, VP Interactive TV at NewsCorp and IS Director at Exel Logistics.
