Alex is Head of Product for BBC News and Weather. He and his team build and develop the BBC News website and apps in 41 languages, for a global audience of over 300m users a month. Over the last four years, the team has worked with BBC newsrooms around the world on an ambitious global growth programme, adding 12 new language services and re-platforming all of the World Service’s websites. In the UK, the News and Weather teams are key parts of the BBC’s efforts to reinvent public service media as personalised and relevant for the widest range of audiences.

Before he became a product manager, he spent nine years as a technology journalist and freelance writer. One of these days he might finish a novel.
