Andy Start

Chief Executive Officer - Capita Public Service

Strategize. Turnaround. Globalise.

I’ve spent the last 20 years helping organisations and individuals to transform and grow. My career started with satellites and launchers but most of my leadership positions haven’t been rocket science – they’ve been about helping organisations and individuals to re-visualise a more exciting future, and then helping to lead them to have a self-sustaining, positive new future.

I’ve been lucky enough to lead the creation and reshaping of some exciting Tech businesses that are now worth hundreds of millions, and in a couple of cases billions, of dollars – but I’m equally if not more excited about the leadership teams I’ve left in place and the people I’ve helped coach to go on and do even more.

Today, I lead Capita’s Public Service business. We are a team of roughly 14,000 people dedicated to helping governments to deliver better services to citizens more efficiently. We transform service delivery using a combination of domain expertise, process innovation and advanced software.
