Catherine has started a new role as chief executive officer of Open Knowledge International.

Catherine said:

It has been a privilege to represent the Labour Party and serve as an MEP for Scotland for nearly two decades.

“I was the youngest British MEP when first elected at 25 in 1999, and I witnessed the EU expand and reform to bring nations closer together in the interests of co-operation and peace.

“I have seen first-hand the positive and lasting impact that EU membership has had on our economy, workers’ rights, and consumer protection.

“I am now relishing an exciting new challenge and opportunity with Open Knowledge International.”
