Capita has appointed Simon Freeman to the position of managing director of its restructured and market-leading Local Public Services business.
Simon joins from Capita’s Personal Independence Payments business and will be responsible for refocusing on Capita’s core strength in this market of delivering transactional services to local government partners. The business has undergone a significant restructure, and has relaunched this month with a new operating model.
Patrick Elliott, Interim Executive Officer, Capita Government Services: "We recognise that local public services will look very different in 2020, as the market continues to evolve and our local authority partners move towards more scalable solutions. Capita will continue to invest in our digital transformation and technology expertise. Simon will be instrumental in delivering an outstanding service which delivers value for money and high satisfaction for our new and existing clients, provides scalable and flexible tech-led solutions, and helps councils effectively deliver vital public services."
