Ofcom poaches Higgitt from BAA

Ofcom has lured British Airports Authority PA manager Adam Higgitt to be public and political affairs manager.

Higgitt said his principal role will be to aid the communications regulator's work on the Digital Dividend Review, which will allocate the spectrum that becomes available when the analogue signal is switched off.

Demand for a chunk of the spectrum has come from broadcasters wanting to ­provide high-definition TV channels, and video mobile networks.

Higgitt reports to Ofcom head of public and political affairs Roger Lowry. He joined BAA a year ago, handling its response to the Air Transport White Paper.
