Juan Gallego, new Head of the European Recovery Fund Office at everis
Wednesday, 21 October, 2020

To help repair the economic and social damage wrought by the Covid-19 pandemic, the European Commission launched a new recovery and transformation program called Next Generation EU in July 2020. A major economic and social recovery plan, which involves providing member states with funds to kick-start their economies, it aims to guarantee well-being and boost growth with a strong focus on resilience.

Digital transformation is a cornerstone of recovery under this new framework, and both the European Commission and the Spanish government have supported this transformation in recently approved strategies and plans, as well as in their financial forecasts for the coming years.

To that end, everis has appointed Juan Gallego as the new Head of the Funding for Future Office, 3F_Office, a unit that will support public administrations and private organizations to fully harness the power of the EU’s recovery and resilience funds.

As part of the Public Sector department, the office will have a team of sector experts and experts in key public recovery policies, bringing together a high degree of specialization in designing and addressing end-to-end transformation and digitalization processes, and with concrete experience in the selection and application of international funds from the EU.

The experience that everis, a global consulting and tech company, has in supporting governments and companies as they shift their services, organizations, or businesses to digital is particularly valuable at present, given the enormous challenge that Europe and Spain face in the effective application of resources for recovery.

In the words of Juan Gallego,everis has had the opportunity to participate in major projects for the digital transformation of public services and organizations, providing support to our clients in similar cycles that administrations now have to enter: identifying need, identifying the best project; looking for ways to finance it, and participating in its implementation and subsequent evaluation. We believe that this real experience should be shared with our clients and governments”.

An industrial engineer with a degree from the Polytechnic University of Cartagena’s School of Engineering, Gallego has extensive experience in the modernization and digitization of public authorities, in the transformation of major public policies and services, and in providing expert advice and support to governments and administrations in the planning and implementation of EU funds.
