Ofcom appoints Director for England

Ofcom has appointed Simon Crine as its Director for England, effective from February 26.
Crine will be part of the UK External Relations team with special responsibility for representing Ofcom to stakeholders in the English Regions. He will also work closely with Ofcom's Advisory Committee for England.
Simon is currently Director of Public Affairs and Government Relations with APCO UK, a political and media communications consultancy, where he has been advising a range of public and private sector clients, including media and telecoms businesses, since 1997. Prior to that, Simon was General Secretary of the Fabian Society from 1990 and before that he was the founding director of the National Campaign for the Arts.
Tony Stoller, Director of External Relations, said: “Ofcom is committed to ensuring that the views and interests of those who live in different parts of the UK are fully considered in all that we do. Simon's task will be to build Ofcom's dialogue with everyone who is interested in telecommunications and media issues in England's diverse communities."
Simon's appointment follows the announcement of Denis Wolinski to the post of Ofcom Director for Northern Ireland and Rhodri Williams as Ofcom Director for Wales.
The post of Ofcom Director for Scotland is to be re-advertised. Alan Stewart, Ofcom's Head of Broadcasting & Telecommunications, Scotland, becomes Acting Director Scotland until an appointment is made.
