Former Which? principal policy adviser Dominic Lindley is to join the Financial Services Consumer Panel.
Lindley led Which?’s financial services policy team during his seven years at the consumer champion, and has also served as an economist working for the Treasury select committee.
He will take up a three-year term on the panel, alongside easyJet head of airport regulation Jennifer Genevieve and Open University business school professor Sharon Collard.
The trio will replace Mike Dailly, Bill Martin and Claire Whyley, who all left after completing their second three-year term at the end of September.
Established in 1998, the panel advises the FCA on the interests of consumers, primarily focusing on regulated activities, but also looking at the impact of activities beyond the watchdog’s remit.
Consumer panel chair Sue Lewis says: “I am delighted to welcome Sharon, Jennifer and Dominic to the Panel. 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.”
