This year, the Unleashed team welcomes Julian Wheeler as our new Chief Product Officer. Julian comes to us from a long career as an executive leader in various broadcasting companies, most recently as CTO & CPO of Sky Television where he spent the last four years driving new digital innovations to market. Here’s a little more about Julian:
Why did you join Unleashed?
Unleashed has an incredible suite of products with an inspiring purpose to help great product businesses grow their business.
The opportunity for Unleashed on a global basis is enormous and I am proud to be part of the team, helping the company to grow and achieve great success.
What are your hobbies?
Spending time with family and friends, enjoying a good movie — or even a bad one! I also enjoy watching Formula 1, and participating in some sports: skiing when I can, hiking, cycling and somewhat begrudgingly, the gym.
Where would you most like to travel and why?
South and Central America. I’d love to do the Pan-American highway on a motorbike.
If you could have dinner with anyone in the world (living or dead) who would it be and why?
I’d pick Sir Tim Berners-Lee, the inventor of the World Wide Web, because I’d love to have a great chat about technology, the internet and humanity — past, present and future.
What’s one thing most people don’t know about you?
My choice of musical instrument at school! I played the violin.
We’re stoked to have Julian join us at Unleashed and be part of our journey.Topics: NZ, Unleashed HQ
