UK.gov deputy CIO quits Cabinet Office for EMC job

Bill McCluggage puts self into storage

The Essential Guide to IT Transformation

Bill McCluggage, the government's deputy CIO, is the latest in a series of senior civil servants who have quit their posts at the Cabinet Office in favour of a private sector job.

He is leaving to take a job at storage giant EMC after having worked at the department since September 2009.

"I am sorry to leave the Cabinet Office team, but feel the time is right after successfully publishing a new strategy and implementation plan for government ICT," said McCluggage.

"This will ensure a modern, fit-for-purpose and cost effective ICT structure which supports public service delivery to a higher standard and gives value for money for the taxpayer,” he said.

At the end of 2010, the Cabinet Office's erstwhile CIO John Suffolk – who resigned from his £207,000 chief information officer post at the end of 2010 – re-emerged in August to announce that he was joining Chinese tech giant Huawei as its new global cyber-security head.

In April this year, the government's deputy director of the G-Cloud programme, Andrew Tait, quit in favour of a job at VMware. ®
