Singleton signs up for Advice Cloud

YLGTGI1IFormer G-cloud boss Tony Singleton, OBE, has signed up to public sector procurement outfit Advice Cloud as a strategic advisor.

Singleton was the chap who oversaw the launch of the Government’s Digital Marketplace and was G-Cloud director for a two-year period to March 2016.

He took up a COO role in the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy but has left the public service and headed into consultancy.

His Advice Cloud work involves helping SME suppliers gain access to government organisations and working with Advice Cloud gives him the opportunity to work with those suppliers, helping them to make the most of the opportunities open to them.

Advice Cloud managing director Chris Farthing said: “I am incredibly excited and humbled to have a person of Tony’s calibre join the team. He will bring an unrivalled wealth of experience and knowledge to us here as well as assisting us and our ambitious SME clients deliver better public services.”

Perhaps Farthing could have been slightly more effusive.
