Executive Director, Digital
Mike Bracken was appointed Executive Director of Digital for the UK Government in July 2011.
He is leading the transformation of public sector services to a “digital by default” model, building and championing a digital culture that puts the user first and delivers the best, low-cost public services possible.
Mike heads up the Government Digital Service, part of the Cabinet Office that has been globally recognised for its work on building world-class digital services. The new GOV.UK website – which brings together all UK Government services and information in one place – is an internationally recognised digital platform for public services and won the Design of The Year award for 2013.
Prior to joining Government, Bracken worked at Guardian News & Media as Digital Development Director for nearly four years; co-founded e-democracy site My Society, and was a Director/Shareholder at technical services company Wavex.
