Domain has announced the appointment of a former Google director as managing director and CEO, who will transition into his new role in late August.
Jason Pellegrino joins Domain from Google where he has been managing director Australia and New Zealand since May 2016, and a member of the Asia-Pacific regional leadership team.
Domain chair, Nick Falloon, said he is pleased with the appointment.
“We are delighted to have Jason join Domain as CEO,” he said.
“Jason’s career as a digital executive with deep experience in sales, strategy, operations and product and technology speaks for itself. His leadership acumen and track record for inspiring and driving performance at Google will greatly assist him to take Domain, and its many talented people, into an exciting next stage of growth.”
Mr Pellegrino joined Google in 2008 and held a range of leadership positions before being appointed managing director Australia and New Zealand.
These included managing director of Asia-Pacific Sales operations and strategy, sales director, Australia and head of sales and operations and strategy for Google’s Australia and New Zealand business.
He holds a BComm from the University of Wollongong and an MBA from London Business School.
Mr Pellegrino said he is “delighted” to be joining Domain.
“I can’t wait to be part of the exciting growth journey ahead,” he said.
“I have spent close to a decade with Google and consider myself enormously lucky to have worked with fantastic colleagues, partners and customers, dealing with the rapid shift in technology, from desktop, to smartphone and now the AI powered world ahead.
“Throughout this time, I have always prided myself on supporting the growth of incredibly strong teams and establishing transparent and trusting relationships with partners and customers, something I am looking forward to continuing as I join Domain.”
