Appointment Of Director, E-Government Unit

The State Services Commissioner, Michael Wintringham, today announced the appointment of Laurence Millar as Director of the Commission's E-government Unit.

The E-government Unit works with government agencies to achieve the Government's vision for e-government. The Unit leads, facilitates and coordinates e-government activities.

Mr Wintringham says Mr Millar has extensive experience in technology leadership, business transformation, and the application of electronic service delivery to the business of government.

Mr Millar has undertaken strategic consulting and program management work for a range of government agencies and the private sector. He has recently completed a project for the Department of Internal Affairs relating to their involvement in the establishment of an authentication agency for all of government.

Mr Millar began his working career in England, where he worked for ANZ and General Electric. He came to New Zealand in 1983 with Databank Systems and in 1990 he joined the Department of Social Welfare as General Manager Information Technology.

In 1993 Mr Millar became a senior manager and consultant for Azimuth Consulting Ltd where he led information systems projects, including the development and launch of the first all of government web portal (a predecessor to http://www.govt.nz). During this time he worked in New Zealand, Australia and Asia. From 2000 to 2003, Mr Millar worked to establish and build Infrontier, Asian Supply Chain specialists, where he held the position of Chief Operating Officer.

Mr Millar has a Master of Arts in Mathematics (Honours) from Cambridge University and a Master of Science (Distinction) in Cybernetics from London University.

"Mr Millar has an excellent understanding of e-government and the ability to develop effective professional relationships with a wide range of stakeholder groups. He has the proven leadership skills and project management experience to maintain the momentum of the e-government programme.

"I wish to thank Bethia Gibson for serving as Acting Director of the Unit. Mr Millar will start as Director on 22 March 2004," Mr Wintringham said.
