“I am delighted to be joining the company at such an exciting time for the Public Services division. Northgate has both an excellent track record and enormous potential across the entire landscape of local government, particularly as a pioneer and leading provider of shared services,” said Joe today. “I am passionate about delivering high-quality and best-value services to customers, and ensuring that the intelligent use of technology places the citizen at its heart.

“I am looking forward to working with the management team to build on the excellent work done to date – to drive the business forward and to make real difference to people’s lives through the continuous improvement in public services,” he continued. “Over the coming months I will be working to ensure that more organisations and authorities, at every level of government, can benefit from Northgate’s approach.”

Dave Meaden, Managing Director of Northgate Public Services, added, “We are delighted that Joe is heading up our Local Government and Social Housing team His appointment marks a significant milestone in our growth in the local government sector. It is indicative of our commitment to working in partnership with government to develop solutions that place the citizen at the heart, and to help deliver the Transformational Government agenda.
