UBM CIO leaves to move into consulting

The CIO of media giant UBM, Rorie Devine, has left the company to pursue other opportunities as a consultant

The chief information officer (CIO) of media giant UBM (formerly United Business Media), Rorie Devine, has left the company to pursue other opportunities as a consultant.

UBM confirmed that the IT chief has left the post but the firm said that a replacement has not yet been appointed, and declined to make any comments about the reasons for Devin's departure. Devine did not respond to requests for comment either.

The IT executive will now be focusing on short-term interim management.

This time last year, Devine moved on from his previous role of UK chief technology officer at directory firm Yell, where he worked for a couple of years, to take on the group CIO job at UBM.

Prior to that, Devine was engaged with a number of consulting assignments off the back of his experience in online gambling - he led the IT team at betting exchange Betfair for four years - one of which being a seven-month assignment supporting the CIO at gambling firm Bwin.
