Christopher Mills said, "I am delighted and honoured to be part of Paul's new team going forward. The opportunities provided by this June's historic referendum result provide a strong foundation to build on UKIP's strengths.
"We now have a very strong team, with talent apparent in all departments.
In the business brief I intend to continue to make the case for strong, sensible regulation, which takes into account the unique aspects of the UK business model, rather than having rules that reflect other, and often anti-business dynamics".
UKIP Leader Paul Nuttall MEP said, “Christopher Mills is an entrepreneur to his fingertips. He understands the need for strong but sensible regulation that builds on the strengths of British business whole ensuring ethical and responsible growth. He is respected across the business world and gives the party huge credibility in a vital area".
