DTA Chief Digital Officer Paul Shetler resigns

The Digital Transformation Agency (DTA) has announced the resignation of chief digital officer Paul Shetler.

Shetler was the old Digital Transformation Office’s (DTO) first CEO, and was personally appointed by Malcolm Turnbull. He joined the office in July 2015.

But with the restructuring of the DTO into the DTA in October, Shetler was relegated to the position of chief digital officer. He was replaced at the helm by interim CEO Nerida O’Loughlin.

In his previous role Shetler played an instrumental role in helping realise the government’s digital and service delivery transformation agenda, O’Loughlin said.

“Paul’s wealth of knowledge and international experience in the field of digital services has been invaluable to the government’s digital ambitions,” she said.

“His creativity and vision have been a great inspiration and have been crucial in helping the government to deliver the first phase of its digital transformation agenda. This has included the delivery of six transformed ‘exemplar’ services and the establishment of the highly successful Digital Marketplace.”

The DTA expects to appoint a replacement chief digital officer in 2017.

The rebadging of the DTO into the DTA was designed to reflect the agency’s expanded role of taking over responsibility for federal ICT policy from the Department of Finance.
