Dr Andrew Larner

With more than 25 years’ experience in improving public services, iESE’s Chief Executive is an acclaimed transformation expert not just in the UK but internationally - with a breadth of experience working with local authority models around the world.

During the past 15 years he has led the growth of iESE from a small social enterprise start-up to the sector’s leading transformation partner – working with hundreds of authorities around the UK, and supporting the delivery of more than £1billion in savings.

He has also worked with public services around the world – he supported authorities in China to modernise their management systems during rapid change, while in Hungary he supported the development of legislation and IT systems to manage a burgeoning property market. As such, he has probably got a wider view of public service operating models than any other expert in the sector.

A sector-leader on information management and the information society, with a doctorate in balancing rights in information, Andrew’s use of digital technology to link authorities together and deliver joined up services was among the first in the world in public services. He is also the founder of iESE.
