Kay Blair appointed as Consumer Panel vice chairman

The FSA has appointed Kay Blair as vice chairman of the Financial Services Consumer Panel, taking over from Adam Phillips who became chairman in July.

Blair has been a member of the FSCP since 2006.

Mike Dailly, Bill Martin and Claire Whyley have been newly appointed to the panel.

Dailly has over 15 years experience as a practising civil court solicitor in Scotland, with a focus on protecting consumers’ rights and tackling social disadvantage.

Martin is a macroeconomist and was chief economist at the fund management arm of Swiss bank UBS.

Whyley is a researcher, policy analyst, and consumer champion. She was head of consumer futures at the National Consumer Council until the end of 2008.

FSA chairman Adair Turner says: “The Consumer Panel has an extremely valuable role to play in ensuring the FSA takes the consumer interest into account in its work. We are very pleased that, as these latest appointments demonstrate, the panel can call on an extensive range of expertise.”
