Who we are


Contrary to what some might think, we're not afraid to be associated with making NO2ID happen. Nearly all of us do this in our Copious Spare Time™, as volunteers.

To find out some more about us, read our bios.

Officers & Staff

Guy Herbert

Guy is NO2ID's General Secretary and the National Co-ordinator, effectively the CEO. Day-to-day operations, finance, administration, campaigning, press relations fall within his remit.

Following the resignation of Phil Booth as National Co-ordinator, the Advisory Board of NO2ID accepted the recommendation to appoint Guy. A role he's been doing since.

In addition to being the General Secretary, Guy is also a director of the company.

Outside of NO2ID, Guy does a variety of things.

James Baker

James is our campaigns officer.

Adam McGreggor

Adam McGreggorAdam is NO2ID's Technical Director, and oversees the technology and tech-operations that keep things alive. Adam's been involved in NO2ID since a bunch of people decided enough was enough, and was a signatory to the original constitution.

In previous roles, Adam was National Secretary, Elections Officer. During the parliamentary stages of the 2004 Bill, Adam was on-hand in the Lords, working with opposition and cross-bench peers attempting to neutralize some of the nastier points of the Bill. Some of which got enacted in the amendments he drafted on the spot. Adam's quite pleased that in part, he was responsible for causing parliamentary ping-pong, as well as being referred to as 'sinister' by a Government mid-bencher.

Outside of NO2ID, Adam's also a co-founder of mySociety, and the Open Rights Group, the latter of which he also serves as an Advisory Council Member.

In the real-world, Adam's a technologist; strategically leading software engineering/development teams, working as he describes it on "people, projects, products, performance, productivity, profits".
