Oliver Page retires from the FSA as director of major retail groups and financial stability sector leader Oliver Page.
Page, who has been with the FSA since its creation in 1998, and previously with the Bank of England, will retire at the end of April 2006. David Strachan, formerly retail firms director, is taking over from Page.
John Murray has been appointed as communications director. He moves to the FSA from the City public relations firm, Powerscourt. He is expected to join the FSA in April and will report to the FSA’s chief executive, John Tiner.
Sarah Wilson, who returned from maternity leave in September 2005, has taken over from Strachan as retail firms director and insurance sector leader.
Tiner says: “Oliver Page was a key player in the creation of the Financial Services Authority and developing our approach to financial regulation. I am also very pleased to welcome John Murray as a member of the FSA’s senior management team. His extensive experience as a communications specialist will be invaluable in helping us to explain the FSA’s strategy and priorities to our extensive range of stakeholders.”
