Taso Advisory, a specialist technology public policy consultancy, has hired former Executive Director of the Centre for Data Ethics and Innovation, Ollie Buckley, as a Director. Immediately prior to this, Buckley was a Managing Director at Teneo.
Taso Advisory has established itself as the UK’s specialist public policy consultancy for technology businesses. Taso Advisory has clients on its books including Glassdoor, Nextdoor, and Niantic.
In its third year of trading, Taso Advisory more than doubled its revenue from the previous financial year, and is targeting further strong growth in the year ahead.
The business is also opening a dedicated office in Brussels to further service clients, and is making additional hires for this purpose.
Taso Advisory is boosting its expertise in data protection and AI policy, and is delighted to announce that Ollie Buckley has joined as a Director to support clients as governments across the world revisit their data protection regimes and look to become leaders in AI.
Buckley has held a number of senior posts in the UK Government, including as the Executive Director of the Centre for Data Ethics and Innovation, the Deputy Director for Digital and Tech Policy in DCMS, and the Deputy Director for Policy at the Government Digital Service.
Immediately before joining Taso Advisory, Buckley was a Managing Director at Teneo, where he advised clients in a range of sectors on their most critical policy issues, including on mergers and acquisitions.
Managing Director Ben Greenstone said: “I am thrilled to welcome Ollie to the team. I had the pleasure of working with Ollie in government, and I couldn't be happier that our clients will benefit from his deep expertise and wide experience. This new appointment affirms Taso Advisory’s position as the specialist consultancy in technology policy and public affairs.”
Ollie Buckley said: “Taso Advisory has built a reputation as best in class when it comes to tech policy, and I'm pleased to be joining the stellar team. Data protection, artificial intelligence and tech more broadly will continue to be key issues for policymakers, politicians and regulators in the UK, the EU and beyond. I'm looking forward to advising our clients as we continue to grow.”
