CMA Appoints Second Deputy Chief Economic Adviser

The CMA has today announced that Dr Jenny Haydock has been promoted to Deputy Chief Economic Adviser (DCEA)


Jenny is currently an Economics Director at the Competition and Markets Authority (CMA).


She will join the existing DCEA, Dr Julie Bon, in carrying out the role. She will provide economic leadership on complex cases and be closely involved in helping to grow, lead, maintain and develop the expanded senior economic team.


This expansion of the senior economics team is driven by the CMA’s increased workload as a result of the UK’s exit from the European Union and the creation of the Office for the Internal Market, as well as the establishment of the Digital Markets Unit.


CMA Chief Economic Adviser Mike Walker said:

“We’re delighted to appoint Jenny as our second Deputy Chief Economic Adviser.


“The appointment reflects our increased workload, the consequent expansion of the economics team and the breadth of economic issues that we face.


“This is a well-deserved promotion and Jenny stood out as an exceptional candidate in a very strong field of internal and external candidates.”


Jenny will take up her new role on 1 October.
