Hello everyone,
I wanted to let you know about some changes that will be happening to the management team here at giffgaff.
After 9 and bit years leading the team here I will be moving on to a new role and challenge outside of the telecoms world in October.


It's a decision I've made with a heavy heart as building giffgaff along with the giffgaff community has been my best job ever and I've enjoyed every single day of it. 

The great news is that I'll be handing over the reins to a familiar face - that of Ash Schofield who's been leading the Marketing, Community and Member Relations team for the last 6 years. He'll continue to lead the business to further success by keeping the community, and you our members at the heart of what we do.
And finally I'd like to say a massive thank you to all of you who've helped us along the way - giffgaff couldn't have got to where it is now without you and I'll miss having you by my side.
Thanks again,
Mike F
Mike, former CEO and gaffer

Good luck in your new career and thanks for everything. Will Ash take over the "Gaffer" account in the forum?

It's a great achievement to take Gav Thompson's idea and build it into the giffgaff network we have today, disrupting the market along the way. Thank you for that and best wishes for the future.


It's good to see continuity and Ash is a great choice to succeed you.
