Please see full board member listing here.

Newly elected board member Karen Young explains "techUK represents companies that are defining our future and to be elected as board member is a real privilege. As Managing Director of a UK based SME delivering solutions to the public sector I am proud of the growth we have achieved over the last three years and the difference we have made to society through the services we provide. I am also proud of our diversity agenda and in particular the development of Women in Tech. I am looking forward to working with the board to discuss and agree how to meet current challenges and take advantage of the opportunities for the technology industry in the UK."

Sheila Flavell, FDM Group, said – "I am delighted to be joining the Board of Tech UK. My passion to create gender balance and greater diversity in the tech industry is well known and I will be working to bring all stakeholders together to drive this forward."

Mark Thompson, Senior Lecturer in Information Systems, Cambridge Judge Business School, said – "I’m motivated by just one question: ‘how will the shared infrastructure of the internet change the business model of government?’. A great deal of confusion still surrounds this fundamental question – amongst both government policymakers and technology companies. There has never been a clearer or more urgent need for techUK to provide leadership and clear thinking to help government reconfigure the UK technology marketplace; to grow mature ecosystems around platforms of common demand, the be ‘of the web’, rather than simply ‘on the web’. I’m delighted to have the opportunity to feed into techUK’s thinking about how we can be a prominent force for positive change in this regard."
