A Santos spokesperson told iTnews that as the new CDO Rosser will “lead digital transformation within Santos”.
“The primary duties of the newly-created role will be digitising and automating manual processes, and using data and analytics to improve productivity," the spokesperson said.
Stuart McIntosh remains chief information officer at Santos. Rosser will sit within a different team.
Following Rosser’s departure from Tourism Australia, Peter Norris has been acting as its CIO.
