1,000 days of Consumer Focus

As the Chief Executive of the organisation Mike O’Connor has highlighted in a note to all staff, today marks 1,000 days since Consumer Focus was created on 1 October 2008. For me , it is an even longer association,  since I joined the Consumer Focus Board upon its creation in January 2008 and I was on the Council of one of its predecessor organisations Postwatch.

The Government wishes to close Consumer Focus and transfer most of its functions to Citizens Advice and it is currently consulting on how this might be done. But such a transfer will not occur until at least April 2013 and meanwhile the staff are doing a great job in promoting the interests of UK consumers. I really enjoy working with such talented and motivated staff.
