Mark Hall elected to techUK's new Central Government Council

03 October 2016

Redcentric has announced that its public sector director, Mark Hall, has been elected to sit on IT trade and advisory body techUK's newly established Central Government Council.

The Council, made up of 14 members drawn from over 900 companies, will lead a central government programme that is designed to improve engagement, procurement and delivery, helping civil servants to better understand and capitalise on the transformative role technology can play in public services.

Small, medium and large companies are all represented equally on the council, recognising the more level playing field that has developed for suppliers over the past five years and the changing dynamic that continues to influence policy, projects and price. It's a situation and an opportunity that Mark is keen to build on from his new Council platform:

"I'm naturally delighted to be joining the Central Government Council. At Redcentric I have long championed the potential of innovative tech solutions to improve services to UK citizens while securing financial and operational efficiencies; and consistently argued for SME providers to be 'let in' to help the public sector realise that potential.

We've made great strides in recent times but there is still so much to achieve on the ground that we must continue our collective efforts. The Council gives us the perfect means to ensure we keep connecting, communicating and collaborating, working as partners and advisors to our central government customers and playing a decisive role in driving critical change."

Mark brings with him over 25 years of experience in designing and deploying managed services to the public sector and NHS, plus an acute knowledge of procurement methods, Frameworks and compliance regimes. He has also played a pivotal role in Redcentric's growth, taking the increasing opportunities afforded by G-Cloud and Cloud First to help supercharge revenues from 500K to £55M in just eight years.
