Richards: “Privilege to lead Ofcom”

The Ofcom Board today announced that Ed Richards will stand down as Chief Executive at the end of December 2014: Richards will continue to lead on all operational, financial, economic, competition and policy matters until that date.

Patricia Hodgson, Ofcom Chairman, comments: “Ed has been an outstanding Chief Executive. Under his leadership, Ofcom has helped to deliver superfast broadband, 4G, lower prices, innovation, competition, and sustainable public service broadcasting in the UK.”

Richards himself adds: “It has been a privilege to lead Ofcom during such an exciting and dynamic period in the evolution of the UK’s communications sector. It is never easy leaving a job that you enjoy greatly but I have always felt that once I had completed eight years as Chief Executive this would be the right time to move on.”
