Chief Technology Officer

 of Huffington Post

Fresh off its Pulitzer victory, the Huffington Post is staffing up. The media group named former Spotify president of engineering John Pavley its new chief technology officer today.

“The first time I walked into the Huffington Post newsroom I knew I wanted to be a member of this team,” Pavley said in a release. “I hope to fan the flame that Arianna and her team have ignited with technological innovations that engage, entertain and, most of all, help us navigate this new world without the technology getting in the way.”

Pavley, a former Apple guy from back in the early 90′s, will oversee HuffPo’s programming team.
