Chief executive leaves Welsh Assembly for Companies House

Gareth Jones has been appointed chief executive of Companies House and
registrar of companies for England and Wales.

Jones will leave the department for Environment, Planning and Countryside in
the Welsh Assembly, to take up the new post on 10 April.

Jones takes over from Claire Clancy, who has moved on to become chief
executive and clerk of the Welsh Assembly.

DTI permanent secretary, Sir Brian Bender, said he is delighted with the
appointment of Jones.

‘His experience of large scale program management and delivery, coupled with
his background in policy making in government, mean that he is very well placed
to lead the agency into the challenges ahead,’ said Bender.

‘I am looking forward to joining Companies House and building on the
excellent work already begun there in the process of transformation and
organisational change, and delivering the core business of efficient and
effective company registration,’ said Jones.
