UKtech50 2017 – The most influential people in UK IT
Liam Maxwell is the national technology adviser for HM Government, responsible for promoting and supporting the digital and technology industry in the UK and internationally. Maxwell’s role links the cross-government drive to improve government technology with the Department for Culture, Media and Sport’s work to grow the digital sector, to support emerging technologies and create the environment for digital enterprises to flourish. Previously, Maxwell was CTO for the government, from 2012-16, working in the Government Digital Service. The changes to technology that his team introduced across the government helped to save £3.5bn in the last four years of the 2010 Parliament.
