Reevoo hires new CTO

Reevoo New Strap3

People: Reevoo, the customer reviews aggregator, has apointed Kyle McGinn as Chief Technology Officer. McGinn joins Reevoo from the Siemens/BBC technology partnership, where he was Head of Internet Technology. He will lead one of the the UK’s largest Ruby on Rails development team who have already released open-source initiatives such as mocha, uformats and the Ruby nabaztag library. As Head of Internet Technology at Siemens, Kyle was responsible for the infrastructure design and build for several high profile websites, including BBC Programme archive and BBC iPlayer. Reevoo’s former CTO Ben Griffiths left (very amicably I might add) late last year to pursue opportunities in Germany.
