Government Chief Operating Officer Stephen Kelly today announced the appointment of Liam Maxwell as government Chief Technology Officer (CTO).

As CTO, Liam Maxwell will support the network of departmental Digital Leaders created by the Government Digital Service in identifying the technologies required to drive the creation of new digitally delivered public services.

The IT Reform group will become part of GDS and Liam Maxwell will report to GDS Executive Director Mike Bracken, who is leading the government’s digital transformation agenda.

Stephen Kelly said:

I am delighted to announce the appointment of Liam Maxwell as Chief Technology Officer (CTO) for HM Government. Each department already has its own CTO or someone approximating to that role. Working together, Liam, government CIO Andy Nelson, the CTOs and Digital Leaders will form a powerful combination to achieve the transition to Digital by Default.
