Oftel appoints DTI's Ingham

OFTEL has appointed Department of Trade and Industry lawyer David Ingham as its new legal director.

Ingham has recently been involved in the legal work for the privatisation of the coal industry and has helped with the new licensing regime.

He replaces Alan Woods, who has returned to the DTI, and acting director Alastair Pitblado who reverts to his former position as deputy legal director.

Ingham says he is looking forward to being involved in regulating the “dynamic” telecomms industry.
