The Associated Press today named information technology leader Gianluca D'Aniello as new senior vice president and chief technology officer. D’Aniello, formerly vice president for information technology at News Corp, will serve on the AP Management Committee and report to President and CEO Gary Pruitt.

"Gianluca brings to AP a background as a strong technologist with deep experience in the media industry and a track record of devising innovative solutions to technology issues," Pruitt said. "He is the ideal choice to lead AP's Technology Department. His leadership will be critical in determining how we gather, produce and distribute news as we move forward in this rapidly changing media environment."

"It is an honor and privilege to join The Associated Press team and its unparalleled newsgathering operation," D'Aniello said. "AP’s storied history of breaking news around the world was made possible by its commitment to technological innovation, and I'm thrilled to continue and expand that commitment into the future."

Most recently, D’Aniello was charged with leading the technical side of News Corp's headquarters separation from 21st Century Fox when they split into two organizations. After graduating from Politecnico di Milano, one of Europe's leading science and technical universities, D'Aniello worked as a consultant for Deloitte, successfully leading digital transformation initiatives for a number of businesses, including Sky Italia. He later became chief information officer for the digital satellite television network.
