RPA technology provider UiPath has formed an advisory board that will guide its efforts to serve the public sector. The New York City-based company said members of the board, which will include former government technology officials, economists, and academics, will provide perspective that will enable UiPath to expand its work with local, state and federal government agencies.
“The insights gained from this group of trusted advisors will be instrumental for UiPath to continue to innovate for the specialized needs of public sector agencies and their employees and constituents through automation,” said Chris Townsend, area vice president for the public sector at UiPath. “Our Public Sector Advisory Board members each bring an incredible wealth of experience and knowledge that will help us continue to shape strong and meaningful relationships within the public sector and solution development at a time when government is rapidly turning to digital transformation to modernize how it operates and serves the public.”
The initial roster of the board will include former U.S. CTO Aneesh Chopra, George Mason University professor and economist Tyler Cowen, former CIO of the federal government Suzette Kent, former Minnesota CIO Gopal Khanna, former Special Assistant to the President for Innovation Policy and Initiatives at the White House Office of American Innovation Matt Lira, former OMB official Shelley Metzenbaum and former Homeland Security CIO John Zanardi.
The board will meet regularly, the company said, and individual members will serve terms of at least one year.
