The Financial Services Consumer Panel is appointing Adam Phillips as its new vice chairman from November 1.
He will take over from Dianne Hayter who stood down at the end of September 2005.
FSA chairman Callum McCarthy says: “I would like to welcome Adam to his new role. He will support consumer panel chairman John Howard as part of a strong team which acts as an independent consumer voice to the FSA. I would also like to thank Dianne for her significant contribution as vice chairman of the consumer panel over a number of years.”
