Keith Bristow, who was appointed NCA Director General in October 2011, welcomed the announcement. He said:
'These three appointments are crucial to the ongoing design and implementation of the NCA. Trevor, Peter and David are influential crime fighters who bring a wealth of experience. They will not only help to shape the agency we want and need, but will ensure a smooth transition into a truly national crime agency which delivers the very best public protection. I am delighted to have all three of them on the team.'
