Google A/NZ boss leaves to join Domain

Jason Pellegrino to start as CEO at Domain Holding Australia on August 27

Jason Pellegrino has announced he will vacate his position as managing director of Google Australia and New Zealand, as he takes on the role of managing director and CEO with Domain Holdings Australia.

Pellegrino starts work at the multi-platform property solutions company on August 27.

Pellegrino will replace Anthony Catalano, who resigned in January. Domain then started a "domestic and international" search for a new CEO with chairman Nick Falloon acting as executive chairman during the search process.

Pellerino has been with Google since 2008 when he joined as the head of strategy and sales operations. He held several roles with Google before being appointed managing director for A/NZ in May 2016.

Prior  to joining  Google, Jason worked  in  several  roles  over  15  years  spanning corporate strategy, mergers and acquisitions and finance at Dakota Capital Partners, LEK Consulting, PepsiCo International and KPMG.

"I  have  spent  close  to  a  decade  with  Google  and  consider  myself enormously lucky to have worked with fantastic colleagues, partners and customers, dealing with the rapid shift in technology, from desktop, to smartphone and now the AI  powered  world  ahead," Pellegrino said.

"Throughout  this  time,  I  have  always  prided  myself  on supporting  the  growth  of  incredibly  strong  teams  and establishing  transparent  and trusting relationships with partners and customers, something I am looking forward to continuing as I join Domain.”

Prior  to joining  Google, Jason worked  in  several  roles  over  15  years  spanning corporate strategy, mergers and acquisitions and finance at Dakota Capital Partners, LEK Consulting, PepsiCo International and KPMG. 

"Jason’s career as a digital  executive with deep experience  in  sales,  strategy,  operations  and  product  and  technology speaks  for itself," chairman Nick Falloon said.

"His leadership acumen and track record for inspiring and driving performance at Google will greatly assist him to take Domain,and its many talented people, into an exciting next stage of growth."

Google president of Asia Pacific Karim Temsamani said: “I want to thank Jason for his tremendous contribution to Google over the past decade. Jason has not only been a great leader for our operations in Australia and New Zealand, he has also been a strong champion of the digital agenda and opportunity for the region.

"I have learned a lot from him and I am sad to lose him from our leadership team. I and the wider Google team will indeed miss him, both as a great colleague and leader.”
