Bill Wrigglesworth has been standing in as acting Director General of Telecommunications in the UK since the middle of last year, but he will not be able to knock the acting off his title – he has been passed over for the top job at the Office of Telecommunications and the surprise name for the appointment is Don Cruickshank, 50, former managing director of the then publically quoted Virgin Group Plc between 1984 and 1989 and has worked for the News International Plc group and Pearson Plc; he is currently chief executive of the National Health Service in Scotland, and got the job – with effect from April 1, because Trade & Industry Secretary Michael Heseltine wanted to appoint somebody for the post who had direct experience of competition as a businessman.
