Sharon White is leaving her position as Chief Executive of Ofcom at the end of the year to take up a role with John Lewis. She will have been in the job for almost five years, having joined in March 2015 from HM Treasury. Lord Burns, Ofcom Chairman, said: “Sharon has been an outstanding Chief Executive for Ofcom and will be missed by the whole organisation. Under Sharon’s leadership, Ofcom has helped to deliver ultrafast broadband, widespread 4G mobile and now 5G, and became the first independent regulator of the BBC. She leaves Ofcom as a regulator with a relentless focus on the consumer interest; making sure people and businesses can get the best out of their communications services.” The Ofcom Board will now begin the process to appoint a successor.
