We are pleased to announce Roo Reynolds joining Livestax as VP Product from the Government Digital Service.

“I’m thrilled to be joining Livestax as VP of Product. It’s an exciting new company formed around a brilliant idea. I’m really excited to be joining a strong team which already has some great technology and lovely people. I’ve previously worked in a range of companies, most recently the Government Digital Service where I had responsibility for the delivery and continuous improvement of the core GOV.UK product, leading multi-disciplinary agile teams in delivering information and services used by millions of people each week. Using my previous product experience and my love of putting users first, I’m looking forward to helping the Livestax team gain a thorough understanding of our users’ needs in order to shape a product vision and roadmap. I can’t wait to get started.”
