The FCA has announced two new co-directors for its financial advice and life insurance supervision.
FCA director of competition Deb Jones and Nest Corporation executive director Debbie Gupta will be taking on the co-directorship in May.
Prior to her position at the FCA, Jones was a director at the Office of Fair Trading for eight years, leading cartel enforcement cases and policy analyses. She is also a former practicing solicitor.
Gupta currently serves as an advisor for West Yorkshire-based IT consultancy BJSS, and was a director at the Home Office for three years between 2009 and 2012. She has also been a director at the Department for Work and Pensions.
The pair fill the director post left by Linda Woodall, who stepped down from the regulator over the Christmas period.
