Marian Cree (in Belfast) and Simon Harris (in Cardiff) join the organisation today, to add to the appointment of Sheila Scobie as Head of the Team and CMA Representative in Scotland. Sheila joins the office in Edinburgh alongside Hannah Frodsham who is the existing Assistant Representative for the Devolved Nations team.

The CMA is the UK’s new competition and consumer agency, with a vital role to play in helping stimulate economic growth and innovation and ensuring consumers get a good deal.

The team will be focusing on building a strong centre of intelligence and insight through which the CMA can be more effective in reaching out and responding to the different economic and political dynamics of the devolved nations. As part of this, the team will be meeting a wide range of individuals, organisations and groups over the coming months to both listen to and help identify the issues and priorities for Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.

CMA Chief Executive, Alex Chisholm, said:

"I am delighted we have been able to make these appointments so early in the CMA’s life. We recognise the critical importance of keeping abreast of what is happening in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland to help inform our work, promote competition and ensure markets are working well for consumers across all of the UK."
