We are pleased to announce that Tracey Jessup has been appointed Chief Information Officer and Managing Director of the Parliamentary Digital Service.
Tracey was Deputy Director of the Digital Service until the departure of Rob Greig, former Director of the Digital Service, in September 2018. As Deputy Director and then Interim Director, Tracey has been at the heart of the transformation of the Digital Service from an IT supplier to an organisation helping Parliament to make the best use of technology whilst enabling citizens to engage with Parliament in new and meaningful ways.
With 18 years’ experience in Parliament, Tracey has deep insight into the complexity and priorities of the two Houses and the needs of its Members alongside the energy, enthusiasm and skills to lead the delivery of excellent digital services for a modern Parliament. Key to this will be continuing to improve the level of satisfaction with Parliament’s digital services from Members, staff and the wider public, and delivering value for money from Parliament’s digital investment. Tracey will also act as lead client for Parliament on the digital aspects of the Restoration and Renewal programme.
We look forward to working with Tracey as she leads the continued transformation of Parliament into an organisation which puts digital at the heart of what it does.
