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.

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

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