Allan Wood appointed Non-Executive Director of Liberata

Board signing brings high growth experience and technology experience

Liberata, a provider of services to government, announced today that Allan Wood has been appointed as Non-Executive Director. Allan’s appointment strengthens Liberata’s governance structure, whist also providing the board with valued expertise and experience gained through senior positions and chairmanships in a range of high growth companies.

“As government seeks to reform and modernise, it needs partners it can rely on to help it improve services, manage and run them on its behalf, and increasingly digitalise and automate them. Having been trusted by the public sector for more than 40 years to deliver, run and automate complex services, this creates a great opportunity for Liberata,” said Charlie Bruin, Liberata CEO. “Allan already knows our business well, and his experience of high-growth companies will be very valuable as we look to broaden and deepen our customer engagements.”

Allan also serves as Chairman of Venn Life Sciences, IT Lab and is Non-Executive Director at Oxehealth, a technology developer that monitors vital signs that was spun out of The University of Oxford. Allan previously served as Chairman of Healthcare Homes, a provider of residential and domiciliary care homes; and Harmoni (now Care UK), a primary healthcare provider.

“I’m delighted to join the Liberata board. It’s a fantastic company, with great leadership and values. It is clear from its long-standing client partnerships that it delivers positive outcomes where others can’t, as well as ensuring it is positively contributing to the local communities in which it operates,” said Allan Wood, Non-Executive Director, Liberata. “What really stands out about Liberata is that its people genuinely understand the complexities of government processes, while having the innovative thinking needed to automate and digitalise services.”

Eastleigh Borough Council has worked with Liberata for a number of years who undertake the council's empty home reviews, and I must say, their service exceeded all expectations. From start to finish, they demonstrated professionalism, efficiency, and a genuine commitment to addressing this critical issue in our community. Thanks to Liberata, the council has been able to maximise our empty home bonus year on year. This positive impact on our community cannot be overstated.

The RV Finder service from Liberata has really helped us ensure that our data is as accurate as possible and, when the VOA has processed the outstanding cases, I fully expect to see more than £1,000,000 of additional RV. The “risk and reward” model works well and the Council only has to pay for their success and the service is something that we will use on a regular basis.

Liberata has been empowered to create a seamless integration with technology to digitally transform the Revenues and Benefits service whilst trying to protect local jobs. The joint strategy has helped to deliver innovative solutions that have exceeded expectations, whilst providing savings to the authority. This surge in digital engagement has helped deliver strong year one outturn with electronic billing and the technology will enable us to show improvements in the benefits speed of processing and in Council Tax processing of moves, discounts and exemptions.
