INCA’s board has appointed Alex Blowers, CityFibre’s Director of Regulatory Affairs to be the association’s new Chair. Mr Blowers is undoubtedly one of the biggest hitters in policy and regulation in the sector and his appointment will add significant depth to INCA’s board.
Mr Blowers said, “INCA is the only association focused specifically on the interests of the vibrant independent sector of companies building the UK’s new digital infrastructure. INCA members are set to play a major role in achieving the Government’s ambitious targets for national coverage of gigabit-capable networks by the end of the decade.”
“In my view the interests of all of the altnets, including CityFibre, are becoming increasingly aligned so I am delighted to be taking on the role of INCA Chair. I am looking forward to working with INCA’s board and members to help strengthen our collective voice,” he continued.
Rob Leenderts, INCA’s former chair and a member of the selection panel said, “Alex is enormously well-respected in the sector and brings a wealth of experience and knowledge to INCA. Working with the board and executive team led by Malcolm Corbett we anticipate significantly boosting INCA’s capabilities to influence policy both with government and Ofcom. This in turn will help us better serve our whole membership. It is also great to get CityFibre back on board with INCA.”
