European Commission appoints new Head of Representation in London
Jacqueline Minor has been appointed as Head of Representation in the United Kingdom. She will take office on 16 February 2013.
Having worked as Director for Consumer Affairs in DG Health and Consumers for the last five years, Mrs Minor is an expert in all EU policies with a direct impact on consumers in the Union, including related policy areas like transport, energy and the digital market. Over the last two years, Mrs Minor has also been responsible for European rules governing cosmetic and medical devices. For much of her career she has worked on aspects of Single Market policy, with posts ranging from the regulated professions to intellectual property rights and culminating in responsibility for overall policy coordination and communication.
Along with her extensive knowledge and experience of the European institutions (which include an earlier posting to the European Court of Justice working for two British members of the Court), Mrs Minor brings to her new role good management skills, a track record of working with a variety of stakeholders and a strong background in communicating policy.
Jacqueline Minor holds an LL.M. from the University of Birmingham and spent the early years of her career as a Lecturer-in-Law at Leicester University.
