Carolyn Downs Becomes GeoPlace Board Director

January 05, 2012 -- London, England - Carolyn Downs, the newly appointed Chief Executive of the Local Government Association, has been named as a new Director and Board Member for GeoPlace LLP.

Richard Mason, GeoPlace’s Managing Director said: “We are proud that Carolyn has agreed to join the GeoPlace Board.  This is an indication of the strategic importance of the partnership to the LGA.

“GeoPlace’s role is to create the single definitive spatial address and street database for England and Wales.  We do this by taking regular updates from each local authority that has a duty to create addresses and street names, and match it together with data from Ordnance Survey, Royal Mail and the Valuation Office Agency.  The resulting data is made available by Ordnance Survey to the whole of the public sector and is invaluable in underpinning service delivery and efficiency savings.

“The partnership approach between local and central government working in one single organisation demonstrates how government can work together for the benefit of the whole of the public sector and also deliver benefits to the private sector as well.”

Stephen Jones, Finance Director of the LGA and Board Member of GeoPlace, said: “I am delighted that Carolyn is taking on this new role as a Director of GeoPlace. The LGA is committed to the success of GeoPlace and understands the role it can play in helping local authorities to innovate.

“GeoPlace has a number of unique products in the market that can provide cost savings to public sector and private organisations alike. We have a big opportunity to push the organisation forward and look forward to working with Ordnance Survey to achieve this.”

GeoPlace is a 50:50 public sector limited liability partnership between the Local Government Association (LGA) and Ordnance Survey.  The GeoPlace Board consists of four Members: two from the Local Government Group and two from Ordnance Survey.  Carolyn replaces former LGA Chief Executive Officer John Ransford who was also a GeoPlace Board Member before his departure from the LGA. 

Carolyn joins Stephen Jones, LGA’s Finance Director, Neil Ackroyd, Ordnance Survey’s Director of Data Collection and Management and John Kimmance, Head of Business Sales and Support at Ordnance Survey on the GeoPlace Board.
