Andrew Pinder is to head up UK IT quango the British Education Communications and Technology Agency (BECTA), the government announced today.

Pinder’s bio includes a stint as Tony Blair’s e-envoy, as well as time in other government and private sector IT roles, and in venture capital. He left the e-envoy job in August 2004, as the role morphed into head of e-government. Later that year Pinder joined the board of security firm Entrust. As of today, he is still listed as a director of Entrust. Apart from that, it’s not immediately clear what else Pinder has been upto in the meantime.

The Becta chair was previously filled by John Roberts CBE. It is understood Roberts will be staying on tbe board of Becta.

No worries about Pinder being on a gong hunt in his role - he's got a CBE already. ®
