DXW, a digital services provider to the public sector, has made two new appointments from the Government Digital Service to support its growing business.
Dave Mann, previously a product manager at GDS and with 15 years’ experience on government digital projects, has been appointed as DXW’s head of engagement. Mann was a key member of the team that built the alpha version of GOV.UK in 2011 and led the technical transition of over 750 websites to the site in 2013.
Stacey Phillips joins DXW as its project delivery manager after working on digital projects for the Home Office, the Department for Work and Pensions and GDS.
DXW now has a team of 16 people that works alongside government agencies to create digital services that are simpler, clearer and faster than the alternatives, so that people genuinely enjoy using them. To date, DXW has delivered more than 40 digital projects for central and local government, the NHS and the housing sector.
Harry Metcalfe, managing director, DXW, said, “There’s a lot of competition for the best people, but the advantage of what we do is that we make real people’s lives a little bit better, whether it’s managing your rent or paying your council tax. We can actually see the results by looking at the number of people using the sites and the digital services we develop.”
