Ian Watmore has won the race to become the UK’s head of e-government, one of toughest and most high-profile jobs...

in the IT industry.

Watmore, currently managing director of consultancy Accenture, will take office in September. He will replace e-envoy Andrew Pinder and oversee a reshaped central government IT organisation.

"The job loses the wider society role [of the e-envoy post] but gets deeper responsibility in government. His role will be about changing the way to do IT in government," Pinder said.

In a wide-ranging remit Watmore will be responsible for shaping the government’s IT strategy, enforcing technology standards and helping Whitehall’s use technology more effectively.
