UK: The Federation of Communication Services (FCS) Board has announced its appointment of Chris Pateman as the new chief executive – to replace Jacqui Brookes who is retiring.

Justin Orde, FCS Chairman said: “We are delighted to welcome Mr Pateman, who is a trade association professional, to build and develop FCS representation and industry services, which will take us to a new level of influence in the communications sector.”

In accepting his appointment, Mr Pateman said: “The more time I have spent with Ms Brookes and the FCS Board, the more impressed I have been with the quality and the sheer volume of work FCS undertakes on the industry’s behalf. “Unlike the traditional utilities, entrepreneurial small- and medium-sized companies are driving much of the growth and dynamism in the communications sector. This at once makes it an attractive and interesting industry for me to join, and provides a compelling reason for businesses to join FCS and make sure their right to free competition in open market places is championed and defended.”
