New Chair & Vice Chair of techUK's Public Services Board announced

techUK is delighted to announce the election of Chris Price as Chair of our Public Services Board, and Penny Williams Vice-Chair. As techUK’s leadership body for our public sector work, the PSB creates the environment and the opportunity for the UK tech industry to collaborate across the whole of the UK Government to enable the delivery of world class, affordable public services for the benefit of all.

Under the leadership of Chris and Penny, the PSB aims to: Improve the engagement between Government and the tech industry; Provide leadership on critical policy issues related to public services transformation; and lead the debate on better use of disruptive technology to drive efficiencies in Government and transform our public services.

Chris is the Director of Public Sector & Strategic Partners at Computacenter, where his prime responsibility is to provide technology solutions that help public sector organisations deliver world class ‘digital’ services, helping improve the citizen experience at a reduced cost to the UK taxpayer. He previously served as Vice Chair of the PSB. Penny is the Director, Public Sector, CDW. A public sector specialist, Penny designs and executes CDW UK's unique approach to public sector services and solutions.

techUK CEO Julian David said “I’m thrilled that Chris and Penny have been elected to lead the PSB. The coming years will present significant challenges to public service delivery, and it is vital that the tech industry works closely with Government to help them understand how adopt emerging technologies to improve delivery. When government is well informed about tech issues, it is much more likely to deliver for citizens and businesses alike.  Chris and Penny’s insight and experience will bring renewed energy to techUK’s extensive public sector work, and I very much look forward to working with them.

On his election as PSB Chair, Chris Price said “I am delighted to have been elected Chair of the Public Services Board for the next 2 years.  I am passionate about improving the engagement between Industry, Government and the wider Public Sector, which I believe is critical if we are to make ‘digital’ work for Government and deliver significant benefit to citizens across the UK.

 

Penny Williams said of her election as Vice-Chair “I am truly honoured and delighted to be elected as Vice Chair to the PSB, through thought leadership and innovation, I am excited about the opportunity to support and drive techUK initiatives across Government.
