CCS appoints new chief executive officer

Following the news that Simon Tse will retire in the summer, Sam Ulyatt has been appointed as the new Chief Executive of the Crown Commercial Service (CCS).

Ulyatt previously worked as commercial director for buildings, before she left to join Home Office as chief commercial officer in July 2020.

Following an external competition, Ulyatt will begin her new role on 8th July to allow a handover period with her predecessor.

Sam Ulyatt said: "I am delighted to have the opportunity to come back to Crown Commercial Service as your Chief Executive. We will, together, continue the great work across the public sector by adding value to the critical services we support and enabling better outcomes for the UK. I commit to shape and lead the organisation by listening, respecting, collaborating and trusting. Key to this is connecting with the whole of the public sector and providing direction in which we all commit to deliver for stakeholders."

Simon Tse, current CCS chief executive, says: "First of all, I’d like to offer my sincere congratulations to Sam on her appointment as the new CCS Chief Executive. I’m really pleased to be handing the baton on to someone who knows, and is passionate about, CCS and will continue to live the values of the organisation. I know she will be committed to driving value for our customers and ensuring that the CCS values of Listen, Respect, Collaborate and Trust are embedded throughout the organisation. With the new Procurement Regulations coming later this year, I have all faith in Sam’s ability to lead CCS at such an exciting time."
