Lord Filkin appointed Capgemini government advisor

Lord Geoffrey Filkin has been appointed as an advisor to the UK arm of
Capgemini. He will be working with the firms’ government and public sector
practice, which has rapidly expanded over the past three years.

Over the past four years Lord Filkin has been a minister at the Home Office,
the Department for Education & Skills and the Department for Constitutional
Affairs, and a government whip in the House of Lords.

Prior to that he was a policy analyst and writer, contributing to the
development of Labour’s policies for local and regional government.

Gareth Bunn, Capgemini’s vice-president for the government and public sector,
said: ‘Geoffrey Filkin brings to Capgemini significant experience and capability
in addressing ministerial agendas, aligning public sector delivery with
ministerial objectives, and understanding how to achieve public sector reform.
His record as an innovator and reformer makes for excellent rapport with

Capgemini’s public sector portfolio includes the £3bn ASPIRE contract with HM
Revenue & Customs as well as major outsourcing and transformation
assignments at the Home Office, MoD, DfES and at other national, local and
regional authorities including the Welsh Assembly and the Scottish Executive.
