People and Business: Quick change

CLARE SPOTTISWOODE, the former gas regulator, has jacked in her full-time job with Enron after just six months in order to join PA Consulting.

Ms Spottiswoode has left her post as senior vice-president of regulatory affairs in Europe for the American utility giant, in order to spearhead PA's drive for European energy business.

Just last week, Ms Spottiswoode signed up with a team of high-profile advisers from the private sector to push forward an pounds 8bn Whitehall efficiency drive. Spreading herself a bit thin, perhaps?
