Chief Strategy Officer for Warwick in London and Co-Director of the Warwick Policy Lab, University of Warwick

With her extensive knowledge of Government and UK politics, Siobhan was a Senior Civil Servant who, in January 2012, ran as independent candidate in the Mayor of London election. She received over 250,000 votes, finishing extremely close to the Liberal Democrat and Green Party candidates. This was a remarkable achievement for a previously unknown individual with no party machine.

In her career as a civil servant, she worked at the centre of government for over 15 years, developing policies on transport, environment and local government issues before moving to the Cabinet Office where she led cross-Whitehall reform, diversity and communications projects. She joined the Department of Health in 2009 where she oversaw corporate management and work on good governance.

Siobhan is currently the Chief Strategy Officer for Warwick in London, University of Warwick, where she also co-directs the Warwick Policy Lab. Siobhan is married with two daughters and lives in South West London.
