Commission post for PwC partner

Robert Turgoose, a partner at PricewaterhouseCoopers, and a former Coopers & Lybrand partner are among two of the new appointees to the Competition Commission's reporting panel, announced today.

Turgoose, 54, is a corporate finance partner at PwC. He has worked on mergers and acquisitions, regulation and design of markets, especially in utilities.

Former Coopers partner Richard Holroyd, 54, was a senior executive at Shell International, heading the oil products marketing futures department.

The appointment of Turgoose and Holroyd were two of a number of appointments to the Commission’s reporting panel announced today by Melanie Johnson, minister for competition, consumers and markets.

The recruitment drive, which started earlier this year, comes in response to a government white paper aimed at strengthening the UK’s competition regulators.

Johnson said: ‘The government’s recent white paper “productivity and enterprise: a world class competition regime” proposed the creation of strong, proactive and independent competition authorities with strengthened roles.’

Stephen Walzer, assistant general counsel of international legal affairs at British American Tobacco and Peter Stoddart, board member and director of finance services at Nissan Motor Manufacturing until his retirement last year are among 19 other people appointed to the panel today.
