Carter Goes to Downing Street

10:30 AM -- Stephen Carter, the former chief executive of U.K. regulator Ofcom , has landed a job at No. 10 Downing Street to be Prime Minister Gordon Brown's top strategy adviser. Carter's role will be to coordinate policy, research, and communications at No. 10.

Carter was the first CEO of the new converged U.K. media and telecom regulator Ofcom and held that post from 2003 to late 2006. He was also managing director of U.K. cable operator NTL and presided over that operator's Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection proceedings.

He will now leave his post as group chief executive of the corporate communications firm, Brunswick Group, and move into an office at No. 10.
