A man from Kingston has been named as the new chief executive of the TaxPayers' Alliance (TPA).

Jonathan Isaby will take over as head of the public spending watchdog from January 1, 2014.

The married father-of-one has been promoted from his position as the TPA's political director, a title he held since joining the campaign group in August 2011.

Mr Isaby, 35, said: "It is a great privilege to be taking on the role of chief executive of an organisation of which I have been a strong supporter ever since its founding in 2004.

"Over the past ten years, the TaxPayers’ Alliance has played a vital role in framing policy debates and educating people about taxation, public spending and government waste.

“Our supporters across the UK can rest assured that on my watch the TPA will stay true to its core mission of seeking a better deal for taxpayers from all those in power who are spending our hard-earned money.

"I will certainly never tire of reminding people that there’s no such thing as government money, only taxpayers’ money – and that we have every right to be angry when it is wasted or squandered."

Mr Isaby is a former journalist who has previously worked for the BBC and The Telegraph.

He was recently interviewed by Sky News about his complete collection of Now That's What I Call Music CDs, as the series celebrated its 30th anniversary. 

As TPA chief executive, Mr Isaby will replace Matt Sinclair, who is joining consultancy firm Europe Economics.
