Murray Fortescue joins CPA Global as Director of Product Architecture and Engineering

November 13, 2017 – LONDON.  CPA Global®, the IP technology leader, has recruited Murray Fortescue to the role of Director of Product Architecture and Engineering. Murray will lead the implementation of a common architecture for product delivery.

Prior to joining CPA Global, Murray was Head of Architecture for myBBC, leading cross functional teams to support the Corporation’s  Audience Platform strategy. A key focus was the delivery of personalised experiences across digital and online, as well as the ability to provide a holistic view of the audience consuming BBC online services.

 “My passion is to deliver quality technology solutions that function beyond users expectations,” comments Murray. “CPA Global’s continuing innovation in technology will see the delivery of ground breaking products to expand The IP Platform. My primary objective will be to manage the delivery environments to ensure consistency of product experience, and the rapid delivery of technology to market.”

In his new role, based at CPA Global’s London office, Murray will lead a global team of more than 150 software engineers based in Australia, UK, France, India, Sweden, and the US. Murray will also lead the development and testing of new products and services within The IP Platform.

Phil Fearnley, CTO at CPA Global, comments: “I worked with Murray at the BBC where we delivered tailored and relevant content to audiences across mobile, tablets and the web. Murray joins a strong and flourishing technology department at CPA Global. Murray’s expertise in understanding how digital experiences can deliver relevant, contextual services will be of immense value as we continue to roll out new solutions within The IP Platform.”

The IP Platform launched in November 2016, marking a departure from the standalone products conventionally used in IP management, and introducing a unified and better-connected view of IP information, workflows and tasks. CPA Global’s continuing innovation in this technology will see the delivery of ground breaking products to expand The IP Platform, transforming the way IP professionals work across the entire IP lifecycle – both today and in the future.
