Richard Montoni, Global President and Chief Executive of MAXIMUS, visits MAXIMUS UK

Richard Montoni, Global President and Chief Executive of MAXIMUS visited the UK last month to see for himself the work that the UK team are doing in establishing MAXIMUS as a key Government partner in the delivery of health and human services.

He spent time meeting with staff and company advisors at MAXIMUS UK’s headquarters in central London praising the work they have been doing, and the significant progress being made with delivery of the two Government Work Programme contracts in London and the South East.

Whilst in the UK, Rich also met with the Minister of State for Employment, Esther McVey MP to discuss MAXIMUS’ ongoing partnership with the Department of Work and Pensions, and to outline for her the work Maximus has done in similar programmes across the world.

He also held discussions with Neil O’Brien, Special Advisor to the Treasury on Work and Pensions, and other senior Government officials.

Speaking about his visit, Rich said:

“It’s great to come to London and see for myself the progress that’s been made by the whole MAXIMUS UK team, where they have established excellent Work Programme schemes in two of the most challenging regions of the country, all the while adhering to the core MAXIMUS values.

“I was delighted to also have the opportunity to meet with the Minister for Employment, Esther McVey. Her commitment to the Work Programme and to helping the long-term unemployed in the UK is fantastic and I have no doubt she will have great success in addressing the employment needs of the population.

“I look forward to spending more time in London in the months and years ahead as Maximus UK continues to help the UK Government serve its citizens.”

Chris Blackwell, the Managing Director of Maximus UK, commented:

“It’s always great to have the opportunity to show off our team’s hard work and commitment to helping get people into or back to employment. It’s a particular pleasure to demonstrate what the team has accomplished and their potential for the future to someone with Rich’s experience in the sector – and it’s just as important for our team to see how enthused and impressed Rich is with what they’re doing.”
