He will report directly to Yell CEO John Condron and join Yell executive management group. Phil Ives, Yell's UK head of information services and Doug Ray, director of new media technology, will both report to the new CTO.

"We're delighted to welcome Rorie to Yell," said Condron. "His appointment reflects the vital importance of technology for our growth plans."
