Centre for Digital Public Services appoints joint Chief Executive

In a first for the public sector in Wales, the Centre for Digital Public Services (CDPS) has announced a job share for its new Chief Executive Officer, with the appointment of Harriet Green and Myra Hunt. 

They will be joining from the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra), where they have held the role of joint Chief Digital Officer for five years, leading on digital service transformation.

Before this, they led the global digital transformation of education services at the British Council. 

Commenting, Ms Hunt said:

“We’re absolutely delighted to be joining the CDPS as joint Chief Executive. We’ve been job sharing for 11 years and this will be our third post together. We’re looking forward to leading the Centre to improve services for users across Wales and to working collaboratively with partners to deliver the Digital Strategy for Wales.”  

Ms Green added:

“We’ve watched with great interest the creation of the CDPS. It’s clear to us that better public services are at the heart of Welsh Government’s ability to deliver on its priorities and we believe there’s huge potential to support the Welsh language, culture and the Welsh economy.”  

Chair of the CDPS, Jessica Leigh Jones said:

“I’m pleased to welcome Myra and Harriet as our new joint Chief Executive following a rigorous recruitment process. It’s an exciting time for the CDPS, for digital and for Wales. They bring with them a wealth of experience in digital transformation and communications, as well as a unique and unrivalled partnership for strategic success.

“It remains to be said that we are very grateful to Sally Meecham for growing the profile and impact of the organisation. She will leave us in a strong position to achieve the aims of the Digital Strategy for Wales.” 

Ms Green and Ms Hunt will take up the role in January 2022.

Webinar: Driving sustainability & value through technology end-of-life

End-of-life is often overlooked yet is equally as important to a digital strategy, but what happens to end-of-life technology? What is the impact on the environment, net zero targets? What is the financial impact, is value for money for the taxpayer simply discarded and destroyed along with the technology?
 

Join us on 13 September between 2:00pm-2:45pm where we look to address the lifecycle of a digital strategy with a focus on end-of-life using examples, achieving efficiency, increased sustainability and delivering cost savings.
