Ashford is currently chairman of the HSBC Pensions Trust and a non-executive director of AIB and the Jubilee Sailing Trust. Reston is a solicitor and recently retired partner at Lovells LLP.
FSCS board chairman David Hall says: “Tony Ashford and Rosalind Reston are joining us at an important time for the scheme, and each brings a wealth of experience that will be of great benefit to FSCS and those we are here to serve.
