Important news from Matthew Elliott, Founder of the TaxPayers' Alliance

July 27, 2012 3:17 PM

Before the start of the new political year in September, I wanted to make you aware of an important personnel change here at TPA HQ. After eight very exciting years as Chief Executive of the TaxPayers’ Alliance, I have decided to pass on my day-to-day management and fundraising responsibilities to our very capable Director, Matt Sinclair.

As you may know, Matt joined the TPA five years ago as a Policy Analyst, rising through the ranks to become Director of the campaign when I went on my eight month sabbatical to run the successful NOtoAV referendum campaign. He also fitted in time to write a well-received book, Let them Eat Carbon, and edit two major publications, How to Cut Spending and The Single Income Tax. Over the past year, he has taken more responsibility for the running of the TPA and I am confident that he will be an extremely worthy successor to me as Chief Executive.



I’m not going far though! I’ll be staying in my office at 55 Tufton Street and will still be very much involved as part of the leadership team of the TPA, along with our Chairman Andrew Allum. Having overseen the growth of the TPA from being a group of volunteers meeting in coffee shops to being one of the largest campaign groups in the UK, I am still eager to play an active role as Founder of the campaign. I will also continue to oversee Big Brother Watch, which I launched in 2009.

With the time this frees up, I am working on a new project here at 55 Tufton Street which I look forward to telling you all about in the Autumn. These are exciting times in British politics, and there is much to be done on the campaigning and referendums front.

With the economy still in recession, the objectives of the TPA – reforming taxes, cutting spending and protecting taxpayers – are as important as ever. I am looking forward to working with Matt and the team as they continue the fight. I’m really grateful for your support over the past eight years,

With warm regards,
