UK Gov IT: Whitehall announces Liam Maxwell as new deputy CIO

The Information Daily - formerly eGov Monitor  - Whitehall has a new deputy chief information officer (CIO), Liam Maxwell, who has been promoted from within the government ranks.

Maxwell joined the UK government last year as director of ICT futures and his new appointment fills the post left vacant by Bill McCluggage earlier this year. 

In his previous role, his responsibilities were to find new ways to use technology in the public sector in order to increase efficiency and reduce cost. Maxwell championed the use of more SME’s in the central government supply chain and called for greater use of open standards in public sector technology.

In his new role he will be driving the information and communication technology (ICT) reforms across government in tandem with keeping his role as director of ICT futures.
