Deltatre, the international sports media technology services company, has appointed Corrado Di Giovanni, previously of Fox Networks Group, as its new chief financial officer.
Di Giovanni, who spent nearly 15 years at FNG, most recently as vice president of group finance for Europe and Africa, will replace Gianluca Cirio in the role.
Cirio has been with Deltatre for over 18 years, but is set to leave on 31 July, with this month being a transitional period.
Di Giovanni said: “I am thrilled to join Deltatre, a company I have long viewed as transformational in the way billions of fans consume content every day. I look forward to supporting the business in its ambitious plans for the future.”
He will hold final responsibility for all accounting and financial planning, as leader of the global finance team, and the responsibilities will also extend to the legal office.
Giampiero Rinaudo, Deltatre's chief executive, said: “Corrado is a welcome addition to the leadership team at Deltatre. His deep and extensive experience in leading the financial operations for global media entities means he can hit the ground running as we navigate an acceleration in the adoption of our services by major sport and entertainment properties worldwide.”
Deltatre, which is owned by Bruin Capital, the US-based international sports and entertainment investment company, has recently entered into partnerships with the dedicated Tennis Channel network, and with Volleyball World, the vehicle responsible for the commercial exploitation of the sport, to help revamp their digital offerings.
The technology services firm was also recently selected by North America’s Major League Soccer as its web technology provider, and has been working with Italian soccer giants Juventus to redesign and relaunch the club’s website and app.
