Interview with Lord Kulveer Ranger of Northwood: The convergence of politics and technology

Photo of Lord Kulveer Ranger of NorthwoodIn June 2023, it was announced that Kulveer Singh Ranger (pictured) would receive a life peerage in former Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s Honours list. At TechMarketView, we have known Kulveer for many years. He has had an extensive career in the technology industry, most recently at Atos, where he latterly held the position of SVP, Strategy, Marketing, Communications, & Public Affairs for the Norther Europe, APAC, and India region.

Having tackled some exciting projects at Atos, he will leave the company at the end of November after 8.5 years. However, he still has his finger in several tech pies, including as a Board Member at TechUK, where he is serving his sixth year, and as part of the West Midlands Tech & Digital Advisory Board as Chair for Digital Skills. Having spent the last couple of months ‘finding his feet’ in the House of Lords, we expect him to seek other opportunities in the world of tech over the coming months.

Meanwhile, this is not Kulveer’s first foray into the world of politics. He was a former Director of Transport, and then Director for Digital London & the Environment, establishing the first Digital Office for London, at the Greater London Authority, while Boris Johnson was Mayor of London.

Last week, Kulveer gave his maiden speech in the House of Lords, a moment, which he states was “significant for me and my family.” TechMarketView’s Chief Analyst, Georgina O’Toole, caught up with Kulveer to understand his view on the worlds of politics and technology converging.
