Fivium Director re-elected to Vice Chair of techUK’s Central Government Council
We are delighted to announce that our Director, Richard Clarke, has been re-elected to the position of Vice Chair of techUK’s Central Government Council. The appointment will see Richard play a lead role in representing the Central Government tech supplier community.
Fuelled by his passion for improving the lives of UK citizens through technology, Richard has spent the last 16 years operating in senior leadership positions within the GovTech sector and, as a result, has developed a deep domain knowledge.
Having held the position of Vice Chair since 2019, Richard has strived to nurture tech-gov cooperation. One of the successes of this tenure was the co-authoring of a research paper for the Central Government Council, ‘Partnering for Success: Fostering the Government Industry Relationship’. The paper and its recommendations have succeeded in strengthening the Gov-supplier relationship by presenting a series of recommendations based on in-depth interviews with senior Digital, Tech, and Commercial leaders across several large Government Departments.
In being re-elected, Richard will continue his work advancing Government-supplier relationships through engagement programmes, support for procurement reform and evangelising the transformative role that technology plays in public services.
“My appointment to Vice Chair of techUK’s Central Government Council illustrates both my own and Fivium’s commitment to representing the tech sector to Government. I look forward to continuing to drive the strategic direction of the Central Government programme and ensuring it accurately mirrors members’ priorities.” Richard Clarke, Vice Chair, techUk Central Government Council and Director, Fivium
We wish Richard the best of luck in fulfilling his duties and look forward to seeing the fruits of his labour over the tenure.
