Devine to mastermind internal IT and web-based technologies

The man widely recognised for implementing much of Betfair's complex computer-based technology, former chief technical officer Rory Devine, has been appointed as the new UK chief technology officer (CTO) at Yell, the online directories firm.

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."
