Tim said: ‘This is a massive opportunity for public services in Wales to embrace the opportunities digital can bring and I’m extremely excited to be involved in this phase. There is huge ambition across the public sector in Wales for delivering better public services, and an understanding that citizens deserve better, the centre can help to embed digital thinking and transforming services’
Simon Renault, Business Director of the Centre, said: ‘Tim’s appointment follows a procurement exercise that attracted a high quality pool of candidates clearly demonstrating the opportunity and interest in the work of the centre and the potential of Wales. We’re delighted to have Tim on board to support this initial phase of our work.
