Kate Beddoe

Head of News & Publishing Partnerships, APAC, Google

Kate Beddoe is the head of news and publishing partnerships in APAC. Prior to joining Google in July 2015 she had been working in the Australian media industry for over 20 years, the last 15 in digital roles in both pure digital business and traditional media companies.

Her focus is on bringing the best of Google to news and publishing partners in the region and making sure that the unique needs of the region are well reflected in Google’s approach to the news ecosystem.

As a former journalist in magazine and digital newsrooms Kate is committed to using storytelling to drive real business outcomes, for Google and it’s news partners in APAC. In her time she's created new teams, walked in to manage old ones, owned P&Ls and operated in environments where she had influence but no control. All of which makes her excited and empathic to the challenges faced in the modern news ecosystem.

When not working, Kate enjoys to spend time with her husband and two amusing children; travelling and perfecting the mix of a good espresso martini.
