UK communications infrastructure and media services firm, Arqiva, has hired Dom Wedgwood as chief technology officer.

Wedgwood will start his role June 1 and will join the executive committee where he will report to CEO Shuja Khan. His appointment comes following a comprehensive programme of system transformation and platform consolidation at the company.

In his new role, Wedgewood will be “accountable for a technology function” of the company and “help the utility sector digitise over the next decade”, according to Khan.

Wedgwood joins from DAZN Group where he was senior vice president for broadcast technology and OTT playback experience. During his tenure he had end-to-end accountability for the product management and technology teams across broadcast, network and streaming. Prior to DAZN, he was broadcast operations and technology director for Perform Group. He was tasked with managing services for sports rights holders and federations.

Speaking on the new hire Khan said, “Dom joins us at an exciting time and I’m immensely proud that we have someone of his calibre joining Arqiva. Having a strong customer perspective is critical for our new product portfolio across broadcast and utilities. The transition to IP and cloud is a key enabler within broadcast and media, and Dom’s direct experience of both these areas is an important factor in his appointment.”

Wedgwood added, “This business has a great track record of delivering innovation for its customers, and industry at large, and I’m looking forward to continuing that work. This role has a broad and exciting scope. Building on Arqiva’s reputation for delivering world-class services, my team and I will be focused on developing solutions that accelerate innovation and growth for our customers through the use of new and emerging technologies.”
