Ofcom has announced that David Currie, a former Professor of Economics, will step down as Chairman of the board after Easter 2009. David was named in July 2002 as the inaugural Chairman of the regulator for the communications sector and has played an important role in guiding Ofcom through its formative years:

David Currie said I look forward to working with Ofcom well into 2009 on such crucial matters as the development of policy on public service broadcasting, NGA and consumer protection. I continue to enjoy working with such distinguished colleagues and I am delighted that we have been able to arrange an orderly succession process.

The process to appoint his successor, which is an appointment by the governments Department for Culture, Media and Sport and the Department for Business, Enterprise and Regulatory Reform, has begun and the intention is to advertise for the role of Chairman in September 2008.

Ofcom has also appointed Stuart McIntosh, Competition Partner, and Peter Phillips, Partner, Strategy and Market Developments, as Executive Board members with effect from 1st July 2008.
