The Australian Government has appointed Mr Paul Shetler as the Chief Executive Officer for the Digital Transformation Office (DTO).

Paul has 20 years' experience leading complex IT and business transformation projects, most recently as an executive at the UK's Government Digital Service (GDS) and as Chief Digital Officer for the UK Ministry of Justice.

Under Paul's leadership, the Ministry of Justice delivered four of the UK Government's 25 digital transformation exemplars.

Paul was the outstanding candidate following an extensive executive search and competitive recruitment process, and has been appointed to the DTO for a period of five years.

The DTO was established as an Executive Agency within the Communications Portfolio on 1 July 2015 to deliver government services that are easier to access, simpler to use and faster to transact.
