Greig to step down as director and head to the private sector


Rob Greig, director of the Parliamentary Digital Service (PDS) is to leave next month to become group chief information officer (CIO) at private sector design, consultancy and enginnering group Arup.

PDS is a joint service responsible for Parliament's ICT infrastructure and network, including the provision of IT equipment, services and training for staff. It provides technology services for both Houses of Parliament, and supports digital services and projects.

Edward Ollard, Clerk of the Parliaments, and David Natzler, the Clerk of the House of Commons, said,  “We would like to thank Rob for all that he has done since his arrival in 2015. The Digital Strategy that he developed and is delivering has begun the transformation of Parliament’s digital infrastructure and services. He has made dramatic improvements in our cyber security and business systems, and begun the vital work of rebuilding Parliament’s website, all during a time of rapid change in PDS. His achievements and his leadership were most visibly displayed just last month during the cyber-attack. We wish Rob every possible success in his new role.”

The recruiting process for Greig’s replacement will start in 2018.
