“They will have experience of working at the highest level of public or commercial life, and be capable of understanding the scale and dynamics of a sometimes controversial industry. They will be able to engage successfully with the highest levels of government on a nonpartisan basis and command respect from a wide range of senior stakeholders.
“They will provide strategic insight and support to a high-functioning management team while being a committed, courageous and effective ambassador. They will be of unimpeachable reputation, wholeheartedly committed to the continued self-regulation of a free and fair press.”
Former appeal court judge Sir Alan became IPSO chairman in 2014 and announced in July 2017 that he would be standing downn at the end of 2019.
