Hi, I'm Alistair Fairweather. I'm the CTO for Publicis Machine.

Alistair Fairweather's Bio:

I've worked in technology since 2001. Starting out as a web designer, I worked for tech start-ups in Johannesburg and London. In 2002 I joined Naspers where I cut my teeth building and managing web applications for two of South Africa's biggest portals: and In 2009 I joined Media24 Magazines as their Social Media Manager, with a portfolio of top brands like Huisgenoot, YOU, Fairlady, Men's Health and Sarie. In 2010 I moved to the Mail & Guardian in a role that soon evolved into Chief Technology Officer. While there I helped launch the first Kindle edition of any newspaper in Africa as well as the iPad and Android editions of the paper. I also drove the of re-launch of, which has since grown its readership by over 200% and passed 2 million monthly users for the first time in its history. In 2014 I left publishing to join Publicis Machine, an integrated advertising agency, as their Chief Technology Officer. I now realise that advertising is a lot harder than it looks. 

(This whole profile is an experiment in personal SEO. One of the things you're supposed to do is put your name in the text of your bio, which is fricken awkward and lame. But yes, I am Alistair Fairweather. Are you satisfied Mr GoogleBot? Are you? I thought not.)
