News Corp publishing tech director Myles Lagolago-Craig has left Holt Street after 22 years to become global CEO at Melbourne-based digital publishing developer platform XWP.

During his tenure, Lagolago-Craig drove development of the platforms that enabled some of Australia's most high-traffic websites, including brands such as news.com.au, Fox Sports, and The Australian. He also delivered the largest WordPress enterprise installation in Australia to more than 15 News Corp websites, involving more than 1,000 internal staff.

Lagolago-Craig was also responsible for the development of numerous technical projects with key partners including Google, Facebook and Apple. Now he is tasked with driving further growth at XWP, a fully remote web agency that develops editorial tools for publishers as a service.

"For some time now, we've been looking at taking XWP to the next level and, after a period of unprecedented growth, we're delighted to have Myles on board as CEO,” said XWP Founder, Dave Rosen. “The breadth of his experience really speaks for itself, having worked on some amazing projects that have dramatically shaped the landscape of the web over the course of his career. I look forward to XWP's continued growth under his direction."

"I have worked with XWP as a partner for many years and I have always been impressed with their culture and expertise in digital publishing," said Lagolago-Craig. "Storytelling has never been more important for brands and publishers. Enterprises rely on experts to navigate this at scale and this is what XWP is positioned for."
