CMA announces new Director of RBFA

The CMA has today appointed Susannah Meeke as its new Director of Remedies, Business and Financial Analysis (RBFA).

Susannah, currently an Assistant Director in the RBFA Group, takes up her post in December. Her role involves leading the development of remedies and financial analysis on major Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) projects including the energy and private healthcare market investigations. She will report into Adam Land, Senior Director of RBFA.

The RBFA Group is the CMA’s centre of excellence for all aspects of remedies work and for providing commercial and financial expertise across the spectrum of the CMA’s casework, including market and mergers cases, competition and consumer enforcement and regulatory reviews. The RBFA Group is also leading a wide ranging series of reviews into previous merger, market and monopolies remedies.

Adam Land said:

I am delighted to appoint Susannah to this role. That Susannah was able to prevail against such a strong field for this publicly advertised role, reflects well on her personal capability and on the important contributions she has made during her time to date at the CMA. It also highlights the career development opportunities available to CMA staff.

Susannah will be an important member of my leadership team as we further develop RBFA as a key profession in the CMA, adding value across the whole organisation.
