The appointments have been made in accordance with the OCPA Code of Practice. All non executive appointments are made on merit and political activity plays no part in the selection process.

Tim Evans has no declared political activity, and he does not hold any other ministerial appointments.

I hope the skills gained during my career, particularly those at BT, will complement the skills and experience of colleagues on the Board. There are many parallels between the challenges faced by BT and the NHS including a focus on delivering an excellent customer experience, to which I know the Board is committed."
