Financial Times Hires Cait O’Riordan as CIPO


The Financial Times has hired Cait O’Riordan as its chief product and information officer, replacing its former CIO Christina Scott.

The Financial Times CEO John Riddig said he is delighted with the appointment.

Riddig added: “Her experience in leading strong product and engineering teams to develop multi-channel digital products is vital to our strategy as we seek to accelerate the FT’s global growth and paid-for readership.”
