Ofcom's Chief Policy Partner Kip Meek is set to stand down from the Ofcom board early next year.
He joined the Ofcom Board in March 2003 and is responsible for Ofcom’s content and standards, legal and international functions.
As Chairman of the independent European Regulators’ Group (ERG) — a post he holds until January 2007 — he also leads the work of 33 national regulatory authorities in advising the European Commission on the regulation of electronic communications markets.
Ofcom Chairman David Currie said: “On behalf of the Board I would like to express our gratitude to Kip for his incisive leadership and significant policy achievements at Ofcom and, more widely, in Europe.”
Chief Executive Ed Richards said: “Kip is a greatly valued and respected colleague. I would like to add my personal thanks for his considerable contribution and support.”
Chief Policy Partner Kip Meek said: “I have enjoyed my time at Ofcom immensely. However, with the completion of my term as ERG Chairman next year — and as my fifth year with Ofcom approaches — the time is right for me to move on.”
