UK’s CMA Appoints Second Deputy Chief Economic Adviser

 |  October 10, 2021

The Uk’s Competition and Market’s Authority (CMA) announced on Friday, September 24, that Dr Jenny Haydock has been promoted to Deputy Chief Economic Adviser (DCEA).

Jenny is currently an Economics Director at the 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.
