The independent Financial Services Consumer Panel appointed three new panel members.
The new members fill the vacancies left by Mike Dailly, Bill Martin and Claire Whyley, who all finished their second three-year term on the Panel on 30 September.
The new members are:
- Sharon Collard, professor of personal finance capability at the Open University Business School’s True Potential Centre for the Public Understanding of Finance. She was previously a senior research fellow and director of the Personal Finance Research Centre (PFRC) at the University of Bristol.
- Jennifer Genevieve, head of airport regulation at easyJet. She was previously head of the broadcasting team within the competition group at Ofcom, and also worked in financial services analysing and reporting on macroeconomic developments and financial news.
- Dominic Lindley, independent financial consultant. He was previously the principal policy adviser for consumer organisation Which?.
“I am delighted to welcome Sharon, Jennifer and Dominic to the Panel,” said Sue Lewis, consumer panel chair. “They each bring with them a wealth of knowledge and experience of the financial services industry and a passion for consumer advocacy. I look forward to working with them.
“I would also like to express my gratitude for the contribution Mike Dailly, Bill Martin and Claire Whyley have made over the past six years. They have worked tirelessly to support the FCA and advance the Panel’s agenda. Their input will be sorely missed.”
