Kieran Murphy has been appointed as the new Non-Executive Chair of Ordnance Survey (OS) by the Business Secretary Sajid Javid. Kieran Murphy joins Britain’s mapping agency for an initial three-year period and will lead the OS Board to ensure that Great Britain continues to benefit from the best geospatial information, while maintaining sound finances and good governance. Kieran Murphy comments: “It is an honour to be appointed as Chairman of OS and I look forward to steering this iconic organisation through the next stage of its development. OS’s strategy is clear and ambitious: to build the capability to provide the next generation of geospatial data, providing the essential underpinning for a very wide range of public and commercial services and facilitating the development of a ‘smarter’ more interconnected Great Britain. OS will also promote its expertise internationally, working with other countries to develop and use their national location data.”
