Dear Colleagues,

This week, we hosted the NFDA Exec meeting in London, where a lot of discussion centred around the BER/Agency models.

In addition, the final version of the CMA’s VABEO Guidance has now been published, the link can be found in this edition of our newsletter. NFDA will providing a further comprehensive understanding of the document very shortly.

Yesterday, it was extremely sad to hear the passing of Stuart Foulds, ex CEO of Trust Ford. I would like to offer my sincere condolences from all at NFDA to his family during his time. Stuart was a great supporter of NFDA and its initiatives, particularly Drive My Career. Over the years he attended all our meetings and provided strong input – we will really miss him.
