Ex-SJ Berwin associate wins OFT promotion

Former SJ Berwin associate Sheldon Mills has been handed a promotion at the OFT after chief economist Amelia Fletcher stood down from the role of senior director of mergers.

Mills, a director of mergers at the regulator, left SJ Berwin’s competition ­department a year ago to take up his role with the OFT. While his job title will remain the same, he will
now manage the mergers group and report to ­executive director for goods, services and mergers Clive Maxwell. Fletcher will continue as chief economist.
