The FCA has appointed two senior advisers, including a former Lehman Brothers managing director.
The regulator has taken on Gunner Burkhart to provide advice on wholesale and markets issues, and David Saunders to provide advice on competition issues.
Burkhart spent 15 years at Goldman Sachs before joining Deutsche Asset Management in 2001. In 2004, he joined Lehman Brothers as managing director of senior relationship management in Europe.
He then worked for PwC, assisting in the administration of the Lehman estate, before moving to Nomura International as managing director of senior relationship management and prime services.
Saunders has worked for over 35 years as a civil servant in the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills.
He was head of consumer and competition policy at BIS for four years, before becoming the chief executive of the Competition Commission in 2009.
He retired from the CC in March and is currently a special adviser at Europe Economics.
FCA chief executive Martin Wheatley says: “Both David and Gunner come with impressive experience in their respective areas, which will be a valuable resource for the teams as they look at competition and wholesale issues. I am delighted to have them on board.”
