Tom Meade, Digital Director (CIO), Registers of Scotland
Since joining Registers of Scotland (RoS) as Head of Digital in September 2014, Tom Meade has been instrumental in delivering a far-reaching digital transformation throughout the organisation.
Tom’s leadership has produced real organisational change, like agile working and improved data processes. But he’s also delivered tangible financial and operational benefits. Tom’s initiative to move RoS to open source systems has saved RoS £750,000 in licensing fees, and £1.5 million on outsourced support contracts. These more effective systems have delivered an additional £1.5 million saving in lost operation time. Thanks to Tom’s digital ‘big picture’, these efficiencies look set to grow in a big way over the coming year, thanks to new online services, digital case and document management systems, and improved digital products like APIs.
