Wellington, Oct 19 NZPA - The Commerce Commission is promoting regulation general manager Brent Alderton to chief executive in January, replacing Nicholas Hill who will leave the competition watchdog at the end of the year.

Mr Hill has been the commission's CEO since the position was created in June 2008, and is leaving to set up an office in Auckland for consulting company MartinJenkins, the commission said.

"The commission has undergone significant organisational restructure under Nicholas Hill's leadership. We look forward to Brent leading the organisation into a period of further performance improvement," said chairman Mark Berry.

Mr Alderton joined the commission in early 2009. He has focused on telecommunications and developing Part 4 of the Commerce Act, which changed the regulation of suppliers of electricity lines services, gas pipeline services and some services at Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch airports.

He was previously commercial manager for New Zealand Oil and Gas.
