Financial Ombudsman Service deputy chief executive Tony Boorman has left the organisation to join trade body the Peer-to-Peer Finance Association as a director.
Boorman assumed the role of FOS chief executive on an interim basis in January following the departure of Natalie Ceeney.
FOS principal ombudsman and legal director Caroline Wayman was appointed chief executive of the organisation in July.
Boorman says: “I am delighted to be joining the P2PFA at this exciting time in the industry. The sector is transforming how we save and how we borrow and I look forward to supporting this evolution in consumer-friendly online financial services in the years ahead.”
P2PFA chair Christine Farnish says: “Tony brings with him significant experience from the financial services sector from a consumer perspective.
“The members of the P2PFA and I look forward to working with Tony as peer-to-peer lending continues its exponential growth.
“We have a commitment to be clear, fair and not misleading, and having a former chief ombudsman join the board is testament to that commitment and also to the credibility of the P2PFA.”
