The Australian Communications Consumer Action Network (ACCAN) has promoted Andrew Williams to deputy chief executive officer and Meredith Lea to the new role of policy manager.

"Andrew and Meredith bring such unique strengths to their respective positions and to ACCAN as an organisation. We're pleased to be able to acknowledge their contributions to ACCAN through their recent appointments," said ACCAN CEO Teresa Corbin.

Andrew Williams joined ACCAN in 2019 as director of operations in 2019.

He previously worked as COO of Gowrie NSW, general manager of apprenticeship support at the NSW Business Chamber, NSW general manager at Randstad, and general manager at Hudson.

Early in his career, Williams spent two decades as an officer in the Royal Australian Navy.

He holds a BA in history and maths from the University of New South Wales, a bachelor's degree in law from the University of New England, an MBA from Charles Sturt University, and is a graduate of the Australian Institute of Company Directors.

"ACCAN's role of advocating for communications consumers has never been more important than it is today," said Williams.

"As deputy CEO, I look forward to taking a more public role in ACCAN's engagement with our members and stakeholders."
