Financial Conduct Authority
The UK government has appointed Christopher Woolard as interim chief executive of the Financial Conduct Authority, following Andrew Bailey’s departure to become Governor of the Bank of England.
Woolard is the FCA’s executive director of strategy and competition and an executive member of the FCA’s board.
Woolard joined the Financial Services Authority in 2013 (as the FCA used to be called), to help lead the creation of the FCA. Before that, he worked at the UK telecoms regulator Ofcom (2009-2012) the BBC (2005-2009) and in the civil service (1995-2005).
The chief executive of the FCA is a public appointment made by HM Treasury. HM Treasury will be running an open competition for the permanent CEO and further details will be announced in due course.
