Lord Birt to advise on Capgemini's public sector and telecoms strategy

Former BBC director general Lord Birt has joined Capgemini as an adviser.

Lord Birt will provide strategic support to the firm, with a focus on its
efforts in the public sector and telecom, media and entertainment.

Up until last month he had provided advice to prime minister Tony Blair.

Lord Birt’s appointment has been approved, as required by ministerial code,
by cabinet secretary Gus O’Donnell, acting on advice from the Independent
Committee on Business Appointments.

Following the Committee’s recommendation, Lord Birt’s public sector work for
Capgemini will start in five month’s time (six months after he left office).

Mark Porter, CEO of Capgemini UK, said: ‘Lord Birt’s top-level experience
will be of immense value to a business such as ours, in which quality and
originality of thinking are key to commercial success. His strategic insights
and leadership skills will be of great value to our clients facing the
challenges of transformation – challenges which he has faced in many contexts
and at the highest levels.’
