Consumer Panel appoints two new members

The Financial Services Consumer Panel has appointed senior visiting fellow of the pensions institute at Cass Business School Debbie Harrison and former personal finance editor at The Scotsman Jeff Salway as members.

Harrison and Salway will join the panel on 1 September.

Consumer Panel Chair Adam Phillips says: “It is my pleasure to welcome to the panel two outstanding individuals with distinguished backgrounds.

“Debbie Harrison has substantial expertise in pensions policy and will be of great value to the panel with its work on retirement income. Jeff Salway has a wealth of experience of personal finance which will bolster our scrutiny of the new Financial Conduct Authority’s approach to regulation.”

“We will miss Stephen Crampton whose term on the panel has come to an end. Since joining in September 2006 he has played an important role in shaping our EU policy work.”
